WtERT Germany GmbH Better structures for the collection of household waste and recyclables in Tunisia
Under the leadership of Fraunhofer, WtERT Germany has brought its project of collection points in three cities in Tunisia to an initial conclusion.
UTV AG Composting of Bio-waste in Tallinn, Estonia
The Tallinna Jäätmete Taaskasutuskeskus AS plant in Tallinn uses the GORE® Cover System Technology in order to compost bio-waste and chicken manure whilst reducing odors and emissions.
AWG Abfallwirtschaft Landkreis Calw GmbH Composting of Organic Waste at the Simmozheim Waste Disposal Plant, Germany
With the introduction of the GORE® Cover technology in 2014, the composting plant could be standardized to such an extent that in 2019 the AWG received the quality seal for organic compost. Due to the high level of satisfaction with the technology, a second plant has already been put into operation in the district.
UTV AG Composting of MSW in Salaj, Romania
The plant in Salaj, Romania uses the GORE® Cover Process Technology in order to compost the organic fraction from MSW whilst reducing odors and emissions. 6 GORE® Cover system units have been installed in 2015.
Monitoring of composting process parameters from kitchen waste and green waste generated in tourism destinations: A case study of TunisiaWassim Chaabane, Manel Selmi, Safwat Hemidat, Nour Chaher, Abdallah Nassour, Michael Nelles
Despite the organic fraction representing 68% of the total waste gene- rated (2.8 million tons produced in 2017), only 1-2% of municipal waste is currently biologically treated in Tunisia.
Optimization of food and green waste mixture ratios during the co-composting operationNour El Houda Chaher*, Abdallah Nassour, Michael Nelles, Moktar Hamdi
The organic fraction of municipal solid waste (OFMSW) reached currently 68% of the total waste generated in Tunisia. Thus, a biological treatment is needed. Composting is considered as an effective and sustainable technology from the perspectives of volume reduction, stabilization and releasing the pressure on landfills as well as making a valuable end-product.
WtERT Germany Croatian Delegation visited Bavarian WtE- and Composting Plant
As a completion of the intensive cooperation of the export initiative Environmental Technologies "Sustainable Waste and Recycling Management in Croatia", a high-ranking 30-member delegation from Croatia visited Bavaria.
Lehrstuhl für Abfallverwertungstechnik und Abfallwirtschaft der Montanuniversität Leoben Practices and Problems in MSW Management for Bio-Waste in TurkeyE. B. Özkaraova Güngör, Assist. Prof. Dr. Hasan Sarptaş, Prof. Dr. Ertugrul Erdin
Regarding the integrated solid waste management in Turkey, tremendous efforts have been given to the transposition and implementation of related EU directives. The “By-lawâ€ on General Principles of Waste Management (05.07.2008), the “By-lawâ€ on Landfilling of Waste (26.03.2010) and many others have been enacted and the management of municipal solid wastes and other special and hazardous wastes has been improved.
Wasteconsult international Compost-like material or thermal valorization – impact on MBT Plant economics and environmental aspects – Case studies in Portugal and UKDipl. Ing. Stephan H. Schulte, João Rita, Joel Braga, Chris Mannall, Dipl. Ing. Hans Kübler
The paper focuses on the utilisation of the solid product from the biological Treatment stages of three MBT Plants which treat the organic fraction of MSW by means of wet mechanical pre-treatment units followed by anaerobic digestion. The experiences of two MBT Plants in Portugal (CVO Valorlis and CVO Suldouro) which produce compost-like material are contrasted with the experiences at the MBT Bredbury Parkway (UK) which, by drying the digested solids, produces a RDF with low calorific value for further use in thermal valorisation. The impact of these two different approaches on the operating costs for the treatment of the digested solids as well as the environmental aspects for both valorization paths is discussed.
