Types of Incinerators Combusters

Types Environmental Sanitation

A variety of incinerator types have been used for the combustion of solid waste, including (1) mass-fired combustors, (2) refuse-derived fuel- (RDF) fired com-bustors, (3) modular combustion units, and (4) on-site commercial and industrial incinerators. Mass-Fired Combustors In a mass-fired combustor, minimal processing is given to solid waste before it is placed in the hopper used to feed the combus-tor. The crane operator in charge of loading the charging hopper can manually reject obviously...

Compost Process Design and Operational Considerations

The principal design considerations associated with the aerobic biological decomposition of prepared solid wastes are presented in Table 3.18. It can be concluded from this table that the preparation of a composting process is not a simple task, especially if optimum results are to be achieved. For this reason, most of the commercial composting operations that have been developed are highly mechanized and are carried out in specially designed facilities. Because of their importance, pathogen...

Integrated Waste Management

Mathematical Diagram Waste Management

Integrated waste management (IWM) can be defined as the selection and application of suitable techniques, technologies, and management programs to achieve specific waste management objectives and goals. Because numerous state and federal laws have been adopted, IWM is also evolving in response to the regulations developed to implement the various laws. The EPA has identified four basic management options (strategies) for IWM (1) source reduction, (2) recycling and composting, (3) combustion...
