The Impact of Pay-As-You-Throw Schemes on Municipal Solid Waste Management: The Exemplar Case of the County of Aschaffenburg, GermanyJuergen Morlok, Harald Schoenberger, David Styles, Jose-Luis Galvez-Martos, Barbara Zeschmar-Lahl
The “pay-as-you-throw” (PAYT) scheme is an economic instrument for waste management that applies the “polluter pays” principle by charging the inhabitants of municipalities according to the amount of residual, organic, and bulky waste they send for third-party waste management. When combined with well-developed infrastructure to collect the different waste fractions (residual waste, paper and cardboard, plastics, bio waste, green cuttings, and many recyclables) as well as with a good level of citizens’ awareness, its performance has frequently been linked to an increase in the collection rates of recyclables.
REDWAVE MBT Jiangsu - – High-Tech Waste Processing for China
More than 200 waste-to-energy (WtE) plants are operating in China nowadays. One of them in the City of Lianyungang, Shandong Province north of Shanghai, will be complemented by a pre-treatment plant for municipal solid waste (MSW).
Wasteconsult International Studies to aim a MBT Plant in Bangalore
Proper solid waste management is a problem in many developing countries, especially
in their big cities. Wasteconsult International was developing a solution for the municipal
waste processing for the West Zone district of the Indian mega-city Bangalore.
Waste-to-Resources 2017 Ways for increased material recycling of material flows from MBTMatthias Kühle-Weidemeier
By implementing modern thermal and non-thermal waste treatment technologies, waste management hast made a big leap forward. In the last two decades, Central Europe has been the motor of the development. The first decade of this century has been a period of development and installation of new processes in numerous locations. This was followed by nearly a decade of minor progress. This article will analyse the current situation and show how higher recycling rates even from mixed and residual waste can be achieved.
Waste-to-Resources 2017 Mechanical biological waste treatment plant for Bangalore west zoneMatthias Kuehle-Weidemeier, Karsten Kanning, Ketel Ketelsen
Proper solid waste management is a problem in many developing countries, especially in their big cities. Wasteconsult International was developing a solution for the municipal waste processing for the West Zone district of the Indian mega-city Bangalore. For that purpose, studies regarding the quality and quantity of the waste had to be made first in order to decide which processing concept is the most favourable. Incineration and Mechanical-
Biological treatment was taken into consideration. According to the attributions of the waste, MBT process with a convertible bio-drying and composting process was chosen and designed.
Adapted selective waste collection concepts for developing and emerging countries
Source segregation forms the essential precondition for recycling. Separate collection
systems applied in industrialised countries are less suited for developing countries.
Flexible process technology for the mechanical treatment of complex material flowsKatrin Bokelmann, Thorsten Hartfeil, Joachim Knierim, Carsten Gellermann,
The use of electro-hydraulic comminution during mechanical treatment of secondary
raw materials leads to a specific weakening of interfaces within the material.
Current research projects and status of the development of fast in-process analysisDr. Hanshelmut Itzel
In chemical processes, it is becoming increasingly important to have an analytical
statement about the state of the process quickly, in order to make the right decisions
about the progress of the subsequent process.
A study of the process of obtaining alcohol fraction from the waste of food, agricultural and woodworking industry
Marufdjan Musaev, Akmal Abdurakhmanov
This article describes the problems of obtaining fuel – alcohol from food waste (peel and spin fruit) and farming (stems and honeycomb corn) and pulp and paper (waste paper and sawdust) industry.
Optimization of preparation of new activated carbons from olive waste via sequential hydrothermal carbonization and activation with KOH and steamGhizlane Enaime, Abdelaziz Bacaoui, Abdelrani Yaacoubi, Marc Wichern, Manfred Lübken
Present study aimed to obtain higher quality of activated carbon (ACs) from olive waste (OW) through successive hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) and activation.
Recycling of plastics – possibilities and limits
mtm plastics GmbH and mtm compact GmbH, which have been owned by the Borealis Group since 2016, have been recycling plastic waste since 1994. Today, mtm is among Europe’s technology leaders after changes in ownership and several phases of modernisation.
Bio-based plastics in the post-consumer-recycling streamJasmin Bauer
The global production capacities of bio-based plastics register a constant increase, and
the prognoses also confirm this upward trend.
Mechanical recycling of polylactide wasteDenisa Bellušová, Saskia Mauer, Hans-Josef Endres
Reusing polymeric materials poses a global challenge. Polymer recycling is thus becoming
an important issue in the current economy.
Management of contraries in biogenic wasteMartin Wellacher, Andreas Kunter
Contraries in biogenic waste have been a well-known phenomenon since the source
separation began about 25 years ago.
The new European Waste Catalogue and the POPsDr. Dipl. Chem. Beate Kummer
The European Waste Catalogue (EWC) provides a common system of waste classification in accordance with the waste law throughout the EU, with the purpose to improve the efficiency of waste management activities. The individual codes within the EWC classify the various waste types.
Storage facility private households: Utilizing
unexploited potentialRalf Brüning, Julia Wolf
Electrical and electronic equipment that contains private data, such as mobile phones or notebooks, is often stored in private households.
Reuse of building componentsUte Dechantsreiter, Peter Horst, Referent: Andreas Lieberum
Cities and buildings are urban mines for raw materials and bind large quantities of
valuable resources for various periods of time. In addition to the common recycling
activities, primarily for mineral construction residues, a market for well-preserved 2nd
hand structural components and materials is emerging.
