  • New Orleans Climate Plan Calls for Reducing Waste, Using More Clean Fuels

    "In New Orleans, we face a triple threat: subsidence, coastal erosion, and sea level rise. This strategy will help us transition to a low-carbon economy that not only helps manage our climate risk, but also creates new businesses, jobs, and wealth," Mayor Mitch Landrieu said.

  • Missouri Issues Final Permit Modification for Bannister Federal Complex

    The permit includes an approved contingent remedy for 225 acres of the Kansas City site that are currently in the final remedy stage for soil and groundwater contamination.

  • Waste Cans a Big Part of NYC Anti-Rat Program

    More frequent trash pickup, increased fines for illegal dumping, changing the rules to require larger buildings to put out the trash in the very early morning hours as close to the pickup time as possible, and eliminating dirt basements in the city's public housing buildings are all part of the $32 million plan.

  • Waste as an Energy Source: the Path to a Low-Carbon Economy

    Europe

    Climate change, renewable energy, low-carbon economy: For some, these are catchwords and arguments for a global ecological rethink. For others, they stand for a business segment that couples environmentally friendly technologies with a clear vision to ensure we can leave a world worth living in for future generations.

  • DOE Completes Evaluation of Hanford's Tunnel 2, Finds 'High' Risk of Collapse

    The two PUREX storage tunnels hold mixed radioactive and chemical waste. A section of Tunnel 1 collapsed May 9, and state authorities then ordered DOE and CH2M HILL Plateau Remediation Company to immediately assess the integrity of both.

  • An Unlikely Hero

    Wheeled trash or janitorial carts make it easy to move carts for short distances, but for covering longer distances, there are various towing options available to move many carts at once, including cube trucks, tilt trucks, dolly adapters, and tow bars.

    Making small changes to trash and waste collection practices can dramatically reduce workplace injuries and illness.

  • Mercury Control with Regenerative Activated Coke Technology

    The multi-pollutant control ReACT™ technology is a completely dry scrubbing system based on adsorption of SO2, SO3, and Hg and reduction of NOx to N2 on activated coke in a moving bed, with regeneration of the coke for return to the adsorber, and production of saleable byproduct, such as sulfuric acid, from desorbed sulfur rich gases.

  • Why Activated Carbon Makes Sense for PCB Remediation

    For about 50 years, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) were commonly used in industrial materials including, caulking, cutting oils, inks, paints and as dielectric fluids in electrical equipment such as transformers and capacitors. Concerns over health effects led to a North American ban of manufacturing PCBs in 1977. By the mid-1980s, an initiative was started to clean up contaminated areas and to phase out PCB-containing equipment and products that were still in use. This cleanup effort continues today.

  • Adventus Field Profile

    Groundwater at an industrial site in Texas is impacted with Chlorinated Volatile Organic Carbon’s (CVOCs), primarily PCE and TCE, from historical waste disposal. The topography at the site slopes steeply towards a small channel where the groundwater discharges. Depth to groundwater ranges from approximately 20 ft bgs at the source area to 1 ft bgs close to the channel.
