  1. 1. Risk of spontaneous fires at temporary storages sites for organic material, waste fuels and recyclables: Quantification and mitigation

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Muhammad Asim Ibrahim; William Hogland; Ghasem Najafpour; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; temporary storage; risk of fires; spontaneous ignition; biofuels; recyclables; waste fuels; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science;

    Abstract : Economic and environmental constraints have created increasing demand for (material and energy recovery) and recycling of waste generated from households, commercial and industrial activities. A wide variety of materials waiting for sorting, recovery, recycling and disposal are stored at temporary storage sites (TSS) where physical, biotic and abiotic processes can lead the stored material to spontaneous ignition.
