  1. 1. Systems Aspects of Increased Swedish Waste Incineration

    Author : Jenny Sahlin; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; biological treatment; incineration tax; waste management; waste import; value of households’ time.; waste incineration; district heating; MSW; landfilling ban; recycling;

    Abstract : Abstract Recent bans on landfilling of combustible and organic waste in Sweden have resulted in an increase in alternative waste treatment, especially waste incineration with energy recovery. This thesis elucidates how the current increase in Swedish waste incineration affects and is affected by the two systems to which it belongs: the waste management and the energy systems. READ MORE

  2. 2. Heavy metals in municipal solid waste deposits

    University dissertation from Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Peter Flyhammar; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1997]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; teknisk geologi; Hydrogeologi; geographical and geological engineering; Hydrogeology; substrate; transformation; emission; environment; MSW; heavy metals; accumulation; teknisk geografi; Geophysics; physical oceanography; meteorology; Geofysik; fysisk oceanografi; meteorologi; Environmental technology; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp;

    Abstract : Extensive use of heavy metals in modern society influences routes followed by fluxes on the surface of the Earth. The changed flow paths may be harmful for the balance of biological systems at different levels, micro-organisms, human beings and whole ecosystems, since the toxicity of heavy metals is determined by their concentrations and chemical forms.

  3. 3. Mixed fuels composed of household waste and waste wood Characterization, combustion behaviour and potential emissions

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Mar Edo Giménez; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MSW; RDF; persistent organic pollutants; PCDD; PCDF; solid waste pre-treatment; torrefaction; food waste; contaminated wood;

    Abstract :    Incineration with energy recovery is the main disposal strategy for waste that cannot be reused or recycled, and a well-established source of energy in Europe, especially in Sweden where 2.2 Mtonnes of waste including domestic and imported municipal solid waste (MSW) and waste wood (WW) were combusted during 2015.

  4. 4. Waste incineration residues Persistent organic pollutants in flue gas and fly ash from waste incineration

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Eva Weidemann; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MSW; PCDD; PCDF; PCN; PCB; POP; formation; degradation; case study; flue gas sampling thermal treatment; fly ash; surface characterization;

    Abstract : Modern societies produce large quantities of municipal solid waste (MSW), which is commonly disposed of by incineration. This has several advantages: it reduces the waste’s volume and sterilizes it while also enabling energy recovery. READ MORE

  5. 5. Environmental System Analysis of Waste Management Experiences from Applications of the ORWARE Model

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Anna Björklund; KTH.; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; municipal solid waste MSW ; waste management; waste management planning; model; environmental systems analysis; life cycle assessment LCA ; substance flow analysis SFA ; substance flows; environmental impact; energy; uncertainty; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : Waste management has gone through a history of shiftingproblems, demands, and strategies over the years. In contrastto the long prevailing view that the problem could be solved byhiding or moving it, waste is now viewed as a problem rangingfrom local to global concern, and as being an integral part ofseveral sectors in society.
