The public concern for the environmental impact of MSW incineration has increased significantly over the last 20 years, forcing manufacturers to develop, and plants to install and operate, high-cost advanced technology for pollution control. This book explores the latest information on this important topic.Includes methods for characterization, stabilization, and solidification, treatment, and final disposal and recycling of bottom ash and fly ashProvides the characterization of bottom ash and fly ash, the impact of moisture on the incineration process of municipal solid waste, and the weathering process of bottom ash in a landfillPresents a brief, but rigorous, discussion of the constituents of fly and bottom ash, including polynuclear aromatic compounds and heavy metals
Dedicated to pollution control and resource reuse of C&D wastes, this book fully describes sampling methods and equipment, pre-treatment and analysis, and the generation and pollution characteristics of hazardous C&D wastes. Migration potential and patterns of pollutants during random stacking, landfilling, and pollution controlling approaches are also included.
Other topics included in this reference include source identification, classified separation and enrichment, site monitoring and evaluation, heavy metal stabilization and solidification, organic matter degradation, dust controlling, clean and high value utilization of recycled aggregate, and reuse and risk assessment.Covers industrial C&D waste contaminated by heavy metals, organic pollutants, and those generated in earthquakes and explosion accidentsIncludes treatment process for persistent organic pollutants, such as heavy metalsProvides sampling methods and equipment, pre-treatment and analysis, generation, and pollution characteristics of common hazardous C&D waste materials
