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

    Author : Mar Edo Giménez; Stina Jansson; Jonas Dahl; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; 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.

  2. 2. Pre-treatment of municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) bottom ash for utilisation in road construction

    Author : Jelena Todorovic; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    Abstract : Municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) bottom ash has the potential for utilisation in construction, e.g. as a road base material. Such an utilisation would decrease the amount of bottom ash to be landfilled. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bioprocessing of Recalcitrant Substrates for Biogas Production

    Author : Maryam M Kabir; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; anaerobic digestion; biogas; lignocellulose; wool; keratin; pre-treatment; co-digestion; dry digestion; economic evaluation; Resursåtervinning; Resource Recovery;

    Abstract : The application of anaerobic digestion (AD) as a sustainable waste management technology is growing worldwide, due to high energy prices as well as increasingly strict environmental regulations. The growth of the AD industry necessitates exploring new substrates for their utilisation in AD processes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Methodology for evaluation of hazards from solid waste and landfill-generated leachate

    Author : Britt-Marie Svensson; Lennart Mathiasson; Lennart Mårtensson; Ann-Sofi Rehnstam-Holm; Kenneth M. Persson; Högskolan Kristianstad; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Analytical protocol; organic pollutants; toxicity test; landfill leachate; leachate treatment; leaching test; waste acceptance criteria; Chemistry; Kemi; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; leaching test; waste acceptance criteria.;

    Abstract : A methodology based on an analytical protocol for evaluation of hazards from landfill leachate and solid waste is described. A dynamic analytical protocol, the LAQUA protocol, including measurements of inorganic and water-quality parameters, polar and non-polar organic marker compounds, and toxicity, was constructed.

  5. 5. Biogas Production from Lignocellulosic Biomass : Impact of pre-treatment, co-digestion, harvest time and inoculation

    Author : Chao LI; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : Anaerobic digestion; Lignocellulosic biomass; Pretreatment; Co-digestion; Inoculation;

    Abstract : Biogas or methane production through anaerobic digestion (AD) is gaining increasing attention worldwide due to concerns over global warming, energy security and the need for sustainable waste management. AD of lignocellulosic biomass is one facet that is highly appreciated since the conflict over biomass for food/feed or energy can be avoided. READ MORE
