  1. 1. Characterisation of organic materials from incineration residues

    Author : Inger Johansson; Anna Ledin; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ash; biofuel; waste; residues; MSWI; incineration; leaching; organic carbon; organic acids; polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons; PAH; Chemistry; Kemi; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : The organic material present in incineration residues has been examined. Water leachable organic material was characterised and classified into hydrophilic and hydrophobic acids, neutrals and bases. Changes of the organic material during weathering were followed. READ MORE

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

    Author : Eva Weidemann; Lisa Lundin; Stellan Marklund; Jean-Francois Boily; Henrik Bristav; Kees Olie; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; 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

  3. 3. Waste-integrated biorefineries : A path towards efficient utilization of waste

    Author : Chaudhary Awais Salman; Jinyue Yan; Eva Thorin; Mika Järvinen; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Gasification; Pyrolysis; Anaerobic digestion; Process integration; Aspen Plus; Ebsilon; Techno-economic analysis; Energy- and Environmental Engineering; energi- och miljöteknik;

    Abstract : Waste-management systems have progressed from landfilling and dumping to waste prevention, recycling and resource recovery. In state-of-the-art waste-management industries, waste is separated into various fractions and treated with suitable processes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Systems Aspects of Increased Swedish Waste Incineration

    Author : Jenny Sahlin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    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

  5. 5. Biogas from slaughterhouse waste : Mixtures interactions in co-digestion

    Author : Jhosané Pagés Diaz; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Slaughterhouse waste; Agro-Waste; Co-digestion; Synergistic effects; Methanogenic community structure; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning;

    Abstract : Global environmental concerns connected to the use of fossil fuels have forced the development ofalternative sustainable energy technologies. The application of anaerobic digestion, from waste streams thatcurrently have no use, can be utilized for bioenergy production. READ MORE
