Brazilian waste management and its symbiosis to the cement market

The rules established by the National Policy for Solid Waste (PNRS), published in 2010, end the duality of the old system collection-disposal by introducing certain regulations and technological obligations which require greater technical complexity and mainly the introduction of Technology in the waste sector.

In this sense, more use of waste is ensured by generating an economic cycle and preventing the shortage of natural resources. In particular, the huge potential offered by transforming municipal solid waste into a refuse derived fuel needs yet to be addressed.

CO2 Capture and Re-Use at a Waste Incinerator
© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (9/2016)
Recently a new innovative process developed by Procede Gas Treating B.V. has been commissioned at line 3 of the Twence plant, a Waste-To-Energy (WTE) plant located in the eastern part of the Netherlands. In this process the CO2, that usually is emitted to atmosphere, is in this new application, scrubbed from the flue gas and the obtained pure CO2 stream is used to produce a sodium bicarbonate slurry (SBC). Instead of the conventional SBC flue gas scrubbing process, where dry SBC particles are used, this SBC slurry will be injected to remove the acid components from the flue gas, before the gas is emitted to atmosphere. Due to the implementation of this process the carbon footprint of the Twence installation is reduced. The new SBC plant produces 8,000 tons of sodium bicarbonate annually and to produce this amount of SBC 2,000 ton per year CO2 is captured from the flue gas. The CO2 originates for about 50 percent from biomass.

Climate Engineering Research: A Precautionary Response to Climate Change?
© Lexxion Verlagsgesellschaft mbH (6/2013)
In the face of dire forecasts for anthropogenic climate change, climate engineering is increasingly discussed as a possible additional set of responses to reduce climate change’s threat. These proposals have been controversial, in part because they - like climate change itself - pose uncertain risks to the environment and human well-being. Under these challenging circumstances of potential catastrophe and risk-risk trade-off, it is initially unclear to what extent precaution is applicable. We examine what precautionis and is not, and make a prima facie case that climate engineering may provide means to reduce climate risks. When precaution is applied to the currently pertinent matter of small to moderate scale climate engineering field tests, we conclude that precaution encourages them, despite their potential risks.

Freiwillig mit gutem Beispiel vorangehen: Emissionshandel für KMU

Kleine und mittlere Unternehmen sowie öffentliche Institutionen stehen meist vor großen finanziellen Hürden, wenn sie ihre Energieanlagen modernisieren wollen. Ein Modellprojekt aus Hessen schafft Abhilfe: Es bündelt Aktivitäten und ermöglicht so einen Zugang zum CO2-Zertifikatemarkt.

Verbindlichkeit der BVT-Merkblätter im Genehmigungsverfahren
© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (12/2010)
Der europäische Gesetzgeber führte im Jahre 2006 mit In-Kraft-Treten der Richtlinie zur integrierten Vermeidung und Verminderung der Umweltverschmutzung (IVU-Richtlinie) [1] ein gänzlich neues Instrument in das europäische Umweltund insbesondere Anlagenrecht ein: Die BVT-Merkblätter oder BREFs. Diese umfangreichen Dokumente bilden den jeweils aktuellen Kenntnisstand über einen bestimmten Industriezweig ab und erteilen Auskunft über die besten dafür verfügbaren Techniken, die so genannten BVT oder BAT.
