The public concern for the environmental impact of MSW incineration has increased significantly over the last 20 years, forcing the manufacturers to develop, and the plants to install and operate high-cost advanced technology for pollution control. Municipal Solid Wastes Incineration: Bottom Ash and Fly Ash explains the tools and technologies needed to characterize, stabilize, treat recycle or properly dispose bottom and fly ash.
- Methods for characterization, stabilization and solidification, treatment and final disposal, and recycling of bottom ash and fly ash
- Includes characterization of bottom ash and fly ash, impact of moisture on incineration process of municipal solid waste, weathering process of bottom ash in a landfill
- Provides a brief but rigorous discussion of the constituents of fly ash and bottom ash, including polynuclear aromatic compounds and heavy metals
1. Impact of moistures and components on heavy metals distribution in incineration process of municipal solid wastes 2. Characterization and weathering process of bottom ash in a landfill 3. Biological dechlorination of incineration bottom ash for a recycle as raw materials of cement production 4. Characterization of heavy metals in fly ash from municipal solid waste incinerators 5. Thermal characterization of fly ash from one municipal solid waste incinerator (MSWI) 6. Use of MSWI fly ash in ceramic tile 7. Chemical stabilization of fly ashes in MSW incinerator 8. Utilization of MSWI fly ash in ceramic brick: product characterization and environmental toxicity 9. Vaporization and control mechanism of heavy metals in sludge incineration
