Management of Waste and Residues in Nuclear Facility

Radiation and radioactive substances have many beneficial applications, ranging from power generation to uses in medicine, industry and agriculture. Radioactive waste must be managed in such a way as to avoid imposing an undue burden on future generations; that is, the generations that produce the waste have to seek and apply safe, practicable and environmentally acceptable solutions for its long term management. This paper examines the management of waste and residue management facility which includes the study of radioactive waste classification, waste types, predisposal management of radioactive waste, storage and characterization of radioactive waste, transport of radioactive waste and immobilization and/or stabilization of radioactive waste. The aim of radioactive and residues waste management should be to minimize waste generation and to produce waste in a form that conforms with the requirements for subsequent handling, processing, transport and storage, or that meets the acceptance requirements for disposal.

Comparative Study of Water Polluition in River Gomit and River Suheli

River Gomti runs across the major parts of Uttar Pradesh, various industries are pouring effluents directly into Gomti and domestic waste water are also discharged into this river. As Suheli River of Dudhwa National Park travelled through the forest, it was found almost to be pollution free. The extent of water pollution in both the rivers and the possible impacts of pollution on plant, Pistia stratiotes and fish, Wallago attu in both the regions were analysed and compared in pre monsoon, monsoon and post monsoon seasons. The physico chemical properties of water at different sites and morphological, physiological properties of Pistia stratiotes and haematological properties of Wallago attu were studied. The present research was aimed to study the ecosystem and trend of Suheli river in Dudhwa National Park and Gomti River of Lucknow city and conservation of precious ecosystem of Dudhwa National Park and Gomti river. The water quality of Gomti river was found to be more polluted as compared to that of Suheli river which was found to be good for the flora and fauna of the area.

The United States, Texas, and High-Level Radioactive Waste Disposal

As one drives south out of Amarillo along Interstate 27, on the right side of the road rests the rusting remains of abandoned drilling equipment. An enterprising, but not very prescient contractor, moved the equipment to the area in the in mid-1980s. The contractor hoped to profit on the construction of a planned high-level radioactive waste repository near Hereford, Texas. Unfortunately, now it stands as an eroding monument to the government's ill-fated attempt to make Deaf Smith County, Texas, home for the nation's high-level nuclear waste. The rusting remnants symbolize, in general, the failures that characterize the federal government's handling of high-level radioactive waste. Like nuclear waste, the remains are neither eye-catching nor awe-inspiring. Nuclear waste, though, for a brief time in the 1980s, inspired Texas Panhandle residents to battle the federal government. The following work focuses on that struggle and the larger ramifications of the United States' often erratic radioactive waste policies.

Radioecological research on ecosystems of Beloyarsk NPP on the Ural

The BNPP is one of the large nuclear sites of the Ural region. During several years of investigations there were estimated the contributions made by the gas-aerosol fallouts and liquid radioactive waste effluents discharged from the BNPP at normal operation mode into the contamination of natural ecosystems. In general a 50-year period of the BNPP operation did not lead to any increase in the content of 90Sr,137Cs and 238-240Pu in the soil- plant cover of its 30-km zone. A long –term discharge of waste waters from the BNPP into the Olkhovsk bog – river ecosystem resulted in the increase of the content of the radionuclides in water and in the bottom sediments of the bog. The stock of radionuclides in the Olkhovsk bog is about 3.7•T Bq at present time; and 99% the radionuclides are in the bottom sediments. This fact makes the Olkhovsk bog to be a potential source of contamination of the conjugated territories and the open hydrographic network. An annual departure of the radionuclides from the Olkhovsk bog was calculated. It is 2. 1M6Bq/yr for isotopes Pu, 1170 MBq/yr for 90Sr and 1581 MBq/yr for 137Cs.

Plant Life in Damietta Branch of River Nile in Egypt

Water gives life to all countries as rainfall, surface water (rivers, lakes, streams,etc.) and/or underground water. 'Egypt is the Gift of the Nile' said Herodotus (484-425 BC) as its water gives Egypt a fertility that made possible not only the development of the famed ancient agricultural civilization but also the growth of this civilization in peace and stability. The River Nile extends from Lake Tanganyika in Tanzania to the shore of the Mediterranean Sea in Egypt for a length of about 6625 km. Damietta branch; one of the two main branches of the River Nile; passes to Five Governorates of length about 242km with an average width of 200m and depth varying between 12 and 20m. It has a great vital importance, since it serves as a source of water for municipal, industrial, agricultural and navigation. This book presents types of waste waters usually drain into Damietta Branch and successive changes of the vegetation along the Damietta Branch of the River Nile. The variations in sediment and water factors and ascertain the degree of correlation between these variables to determine the factors controlling the distribution and abundance of the plant communities in the Damietta branch.

The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam in the Eyes of the Press

The GERD continued to generate lots of buzz in the Ethiopian scene starting from its announcement. It is also considered as a ringing bell to the foreign policy strategy of the rest Nile riparians; because the dam could affect the national interest of the co-basin states positively or negatively; and it may also serves as an exemplary project to other upstream states in terms of initiating similar activities on the Nile river waters. As to the author’s knowledge, however, in the Eastern Nile basin context, no study has been done in examining media coverage of huge dam constructions on the Nile River. So this knowledge gap attracted the writer to conduct a study by taking the magnanimous GERD project as a specific case, which aims at assessing how the national and global press covered it. This book has been written with due care is ready to throw ample light to media houses. It helps them to recognize their weak spots and thereby take corrective measures in relation to their shortcomings. I do hope that the book will cater appealing information at least for media students, researchers, professionals, policymakers, and donors that may involve in funding big hydropower projects.

A Study on the Impacts of Tanneries and Planning Approaches

At present, there are about 200 tanneries in Bangladesh. Most of which are located at Hazaribagh area. Most of these industries have no effluent treatment plant for the treatment of tannery effluents and the tanneries discharge different types of waste into the environment, particularly in the form of liquid effluents and solid wastes. The toxic effluents and solid waste contaminate soil, air and water of the area as well as the water of the adjacent Buriganga River and led to severe ailments such as eye diseases, skin irritations, kidney failure and gastrointestinal problems. To save the environment of Hazribagh and surrounding areas and the river Buriganga the government had taken an initiative to relocate the tanneries from Hazaribagh to the proposed Tannery Estate at Tetuljhora and Hazratpur union across the Dhalesshari River out side of Dhaka City. From general perspective the policy is economically and socially viable. But from planning perspectives there are some major weaknesses. The government needs to be conscious that the project will not result in externalities to others.
Severe Accident at Nuclear Power Plant of Angra dos Reis Severe Accident at Nuclear Power Plant of Angra dos Reis Новинка

Severe Accident at Nuclear Power Plant of Angra dos Reis

Under normal operation, nuclear plants release small amounts of radioactive waste. In the unlikely event of a severe accident, followed by successive failures of physical barriers and problems in the control systems and protection of the reactor, the release of radioactive materials can become significant. The problems generated from these catastrophic events can lead to the achievement of high levels of radioactivity in the vicinity of the plant, posing a threat to humans, society and local life. In either of these scenarios, appropriate models and computational tools are needed to predict and evaluate the radiological consequences for the population and the environment. The purpose of studying the dispersion of radionuclides produced and released by a nuclear accident is to provide the information necessary to mitigate its effects. The aim of this work is to evaluate the possible failures in the Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs) of Angra dos Reis (Brazil) which may result in a severe accident. Atmospheric circulation and dispersion models were used to evaluate the displacement of the plume that is strongly influenced by the complex topography of the region.
Healthcare Waste Management in Ghana Healthcare Waste Management in Ghana Новинка

Healthcare Waste Management in Ghana

Healthcare waste has been managed anyhow in the past mainly to avoid its stockpile, nuisance and public reaction without much concern to public health and the environment. Two waste categories are considered: general and hazardous. The former is not infectious. The latter contains infectious, chemical or radioactive properties and needs to be managed properly. This study within 5 healthcare facilities within the Accra and Tema Metropolitan areas in Ghana focused on the practice from generation to disposal, a review of the draft national guidelines on Healthcare waste, roles of other government agencies and the adoption of appropriate management options. HCW was not well managed. The system lacked the necessary safety measures. Treatment and disposal methods within and outside the healthcare premises were not satisfactory. A national law to promote, monitor standards and address issues of non-compliance was lacking. An integrated management system is required. The analysis has highlighted gaps and the way forward for handling healthcare waste in developing countries and should also benefit academicians and professionals in waste management, public health and environmental science.
Sustainable River Basin Management of the Buriganga River Sustainable River Basin Management of the Buriganga River Новинка

Sustainable River Basin Management of the Buriganga River

The Buriganga River has dramatically been disrupted due to extreme reduction of its water flow and encroachment of the banks and rigorous pollution due to human waste, industrial garbage and solid waste dumping. Many illegal structures and construction works have grown up along the banks making the river narrower and destroying the natural phenomena to flow normally. The sustainable development of the city using this river system has become a great challenge. The continuing water pollution poses serious threat to its inhabitants and the natural environment. The Buriganga River is now almost a dying river and the present condition will be more inferior unless necessary steps are taken immediately. Unfortunately there is no distinct river basin committee yet, even not for all other rivers in Bangladesh. No IWRM implementation policy is practised in the country. An integrated river basin organization is highly necessary to implement IWRM approach to save the river. This book provides a consistent and effective framework of River Basin Organization and promote a systematic sustainable river basin management.

Water Hyacinth Treatment of Domestic Wastewater Water Hyacinth Treatment of Domestic Wastewater Новинка

Water Hyacinth Treatment of Domestic Wastewater

Water Hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) is a fast-growing, free-floating aquatic weed having a unique survival capacity and a quest for nutrients to grow. Complete eradication of water hyacinth is quite impossible and hence utilization of its scavenging capacity has been the only way out to get rid of this obnoxious weed as well as to meet out the requirements of treating large volumes of waste waters due to increased population and economic development world over. The aim of this book is to present the positive aspect of water hyacinth through its utilization and at the same time to come out with an easy, economical and efficient method of treating domestic waste water. This method is quite efficient in removing pollutional parameters of domestic waste water such as BOD, COD, suspended and dissolved solids etc. Another advantage is re-use of the treated waste water for non-potable purposes like industrial, agricultural or gardening etc. and furthermore the plant biomass produced during the process can be used as a fertilizer, animal feed, soil enrichment material and a good source for production of bio-gas with high percentage of methane.
Vermicomposting: Solid Waste Management and Crop Improvement Vermicomposting: Solid Waste Management and Crop Improvement Новинка

Vermicomposting: Solid Waste Management and Crop Improvement

The living standard of the people has increased across the world due to the rapid economic development which directly leads into more material consumption and more waste generation. Waste management is a challenging problem in all countries. Disposal of Organic waste, uses large quantities of land for disposal and are often a source of soil and groundwater pollution. Vermicomposting is the process by which earthworms are used to convert organic materials (usually wastes) into a humus-like material known as vermicompost. Vermiculture or vermicomposting is derived from the Latin term vermis, meaning worms. Vermicomposting is a simple biotechnological process of composting in which certain species of earthworms are used to convert the biodegradable solid wastes or organic wastes into a nutrient-rich end product, vermicompost, which is used as a soil conditioner. Vermicompost can have great effects upon the germination, flowering, fruiting and yields of a crop particularly high value crops.Because vermicompost are so rich in plant nutrients, they promote plant growth and yields at relatively low application rates into plant growth media and soils.
Immobilization of Organic Radioactive Wastes Immobilization of Organic Radioactive Wastes Новинка

Immobilization of Organic Radioactive Wastes

Spent liquid scintillator cocktails which originated from liquid scintillation counting technique are containing radioactive nuclides and classified as one of the most problematic wastes. This can be attributed to possessing both of specific radioactive contaminants and their organic nature. However, special options should be developed to address these characteristics of these wastes. Solidification/stabilization of these wastes in cement is oriented to prevent the return of the harmful radioactive materials to the environment during the disposal of these wastes keeping the surrounding environment clean and tidy for man and has coming generations. The solidified waste form can optimally comply with the requirements for the disposal process even at very exaggerating conditions. The aim of the present study is to immobilize the spent organic liquid scintillator wastes collected and segregated at the Nuclear Research Center, Egyptian Atomic Energy in cement matrices which contain natural clay as admixture. This work is a part of comprehensive program started and carried out at the Radioisotope Department since 1970.
Black Dragon River Black Dragon River Новинка

Black Dragon River

Black Dragon River is a journey down one of Asia's great rivers. The world's ninth largest river, the Amur runs along the border between Russia and China. Seen as a crossroads for the great empires of Asia, the area gives journalist Dominic Ziegler a lens to examine the societies at Europe's only borderland with east Asia. He travels from the river's top to bottom, and weaves the history, ecology and peoples to show a region obsessed with the past. The Amur cuts through terrain legendarily difficult to cross. Near the river's source, Ziegler travels on horseback from the Mongolian steppe into the taiga, and is later forced to take the Trans-Siberian Railway through the four-hundred-mile valley of water meadows inland. As he voyages deeper into the Amur wilderness, Ziegler also journeys into the history of the peoples and cultures.The known history of the river begins with Genghis Khan and the rise of the Mongolian empire a millennium ago. For China, the Amur is a symbol of national humiliation and Western land seizure; to Russia it is a symbol of national regeneration, New World dreams, and eastern prospects. To understand Putin's imperial dreams, we must comprehend Russia's relationship to its far east and how it still shapes the Russian mind. Not only is the Amur a key to Putinism, it is a key to unlocking the current complex relationship between Russia and China.

The Dirty Colors of Growth: China's Huai River

China s spectacular growth has brought not just prosperity, but also serious damage to the environment. For photographer Andreas Seibert, the present state of the Huai River is a clear example of these problems. Several stretches of the river have been so seriously polluted by toxic waste that people are advised not to even touch the water. Seibert has traveled along the river from source to mouth in order to record how it changes from a stretch of water rising amidst unspoiled nature into a large and poisonous river. Pictures taken on his travels present the poor hinterlands which are generally forgotten in discussions on China, and show the people who live on and near the river in a habitat on the brink of destruction. Andreas Seibe rt was born in 1970 in Wettingen, Aargau, Switzerland. He studied photography at the Hochschule der Kunste in Zurich and German literature and philosophy at the University of Zurich. He has lived in Tokyo since 1997. His photographic work has been published in numerous international magazines and shown in exhibitions all over the world.

Practices & Challenges Of Solid Waste Management In Ambo Town

This study was conducted in Ambo town at kebele 03. Its objective is to assess the practices and challenges of solid waste management system in the kebele. The study used both primary and secondary data sources. 150 sample households were randomly selected for the household survey. Both qualitative and quantitative methods of data analysis were used. A chi-square statistics was used to assess the relationships of some variables. The result of the study shows that 74% of households burn solid waste in kebele. 52.7% dispose in an open space, 41.3% dump into a river, 33.3% reuse and only 11.3% of households’ compost waste they generate. It can be concluded that the solid waste management system of kebele 03 is very weak. There is no door-to-door solid waste collection service, no solid waste container or dustbin in the kebele and the sorting, reusing and composting practice of households is very weak. As a result, the environment of the kebele is found in bad condition and the majority of households are not satisfied with the existing solid waste management system. In other way , the findings of the research show that most households (84.7%) are willing to pay for service charges.

WASTE HEAT RECOVERY AND ENERGY CONSERVATION OF ARL DISTILLATION UNIT WASTE HEAT RECOVERY AND ENERGY CONSERVATION OF ARL DISTILLATION UNIT Новинка

WASTE HEAT RECOVERY AND ENERGY CONSERVATION OF ARL DISTILLATION UNIT

Energy conservation and waste heat recovery are important global issues of our times. Attock Oil Refinery Limited (ARL) is pioneer in crude oil refining in Pakistan. After thorough surveys and analysis Heavy Crude Unit (HCU) was selected for energy conservation and waste heat recovery. A detailed study of the plant led to the identification of potential zones for energy conservation and waste heat recovery. Energy conservation was done in the ‘pre-heat train'' which exchanges heat between the products at high temperature and crude at low temperature. By increasing the heat exchange here, both the amount of fuel burnt in the heater to heat crude and the coolant used to cool products could be reduced. Waste heat recovery was done on the flue gases of the combined stack of two heaters which were being exhausted into the atmosphere at a temperature well above its due point temperature. Recovered heat could be used to heat up the intake air for combustion in the heater which was being used at ambient temperature, saving fuel and environment, hence addresing economic and global warming issues.
Cement Uptake Mechanisms Cement Uptake Mechanisms Новинка

Cement Uptake Mechanisms

Cement-based materials are used worldwide for solidifying and stabilizing hazardous and radioactive wastes in order to prevent or retard the release of contaminants from the waste matrix into the environment. The long-term disposal of cement-stabilized hazardous waste is associated with landfilling of these waste forms, whereas deep geological disposal is foreseen for some categories of cement-stabilized radioactive waste. For the latter waste form, cement is used to condition and stabilize the waste materials and to construct the engineered barrier systems. The uptake mechanism of Ni(II) and Co(II) by hardened cement paste at different reaction conditions were investigated by combining macro- and micro-spectroscopic techniques. The findings from this study indicate that, although Ni(II) and Co(II) are both divalent cations, they react differently during the hydration of cement. Nevertheless, both cations became immobilized in specific minerals phases. These immobilization processes are expected to reduce the mobility of Co and Ni in the cement matrix and, consequently the impact on the environment.

Hydrochemistry of Groundwater in Varahi and Markandeya river basins

The groundwater in the Varahi river basin in Udupi distirct and Markandeya river basin in Belgaum district, both situated in Karnataka state were evaluated for their physico-chemical composition, radon and tritium content in addition to their suitability for domestic and irrigation purposes. In comparison with Varahi river basin, considerable area in the Markandeya river basin are having high salinity hazards, TDS, hardness, alkalinity, chloride, etc., and such zones require special care and alternative salt tolerant cropping pattern. The groundwater data sets were subjected to geochemical modelling to depict the equilibrium state of various minerals species controlling geochemistry of water. Majority of the analyzed groundwater in Varahi (93.34 %) and Markandeya (68.75 %) river basins exhibited radioactive decay (1-8 T.U.) having a mixture of pre-modern (viz., old water) water with modern (viz., new water) recharge. The annual effective dose due to ingestion of water-borne radon were significantly lower than the UNSCEAR and WHO recommended limit for members of the public at 1 mSv/year. Groundwater data sets were also subjected to multivariate statistical analysis.
PROCESSES AND CONSEQUENCES OF DEGRADATION OF HANUMANTE RIVER PROCESSES AND CONSEQUENCES OF DEGRADATION OF HANUMANTE RIVER Новинка

PROCESSES AND CONSEQUENCES OF DEGRADATION OF HANUMANTE RIVER

Degradation of rivers in the urban areas has become a serious problem around the world. Though the causes leading to river degradation are diverse, disposal of solid and liquid waste, encroachment upon the river waterway and water extraction are some of the obvious causes of river degradation. The studies focusing on river degradation often limit the area of inquiries to the assessment of changes in the river hydrology, morphology and water quality. While these assessments are important, it is also immensely important to look into the consequences of river degradation- who are affected, how and to what extent? This study was carried out with the aim of evaluating the factors and processes leading to the degradation of Hanumante River and the cultural, religious and livelihood consequences therefrom and the adaptation of people depending on river for their livelihood.

A multiscale approach to mechanical modeling of a leaf petiole

A plant is a natural hierarchical structure, which exhibits remarkable mechanical properties. The macro (scale) mechanical properties of a plant are the cumulative outcome of the structural properties of its preceding level of structural hierarchy. To develop engineering structures inspired by a plant and its organs, a comprehensive characterization of its mechanical properties exhibited at multiple hierarchical orders is essential. This work presents a set of theoretical and computational models at various orders of the structural hierarchy to capture the overall structural properties of a plant petiole. The modeling method is framed within a multiscale mechanics framework, which is essential for any structure displaying hierarchical orders of organization. The macro structural properties, i.e. flexural and torsional stiffness, of a plant petiole are obtained by correlating cell wall construction, tissue microstructure, and structural shape morphology.

One of the issues regarding Municipal Solid Waste Management (MSWM) in Malaysia is an abbreviate life span due to the intensifying amount of the solid waste generation and human population as well. Other concerns are about environmental and public health as consequences of inefficient waste management which results to fly production, odor, leachate and other possible negative effects. In this book the current situation of waste management system in the faculty of Engineering in the National University of Malaysia (UKM) has been investigated and some recommendations have been given.
Healthcare Waste Management Healthcare Waste Management Новинка

Healthcare Waste Management

In pursuing their aims of reducing health problems and eliminating potential risks to people’s health, health-care services inevitably create waste that may itself be hazardous to health. The waste produced in the course of health-care activities carries a higher potential for infection and injury than any other type of waste. Wherever it is generated, safe and reliable methods for its handling are therefore essential. Inadequate and inappropriate handling of health-care waste may have serious public health consequences and a significant impact on the environment. Sound management of health-care waste is thus a crucial component of environmental health protection. In both the short term and the long term, the actions involved in implementing effective health-care waste management programmes require multi-sectoral cooperation and interaction at all levels. Policies should be generated and coordinated globally, and the management practices implemented locally. Establishment of a national policy and a legal framework, training of personnel, and raising public awareness are essential elements of successful health-care waste management.

Waste Treatment and Recycling in Nigeria

The problem of solid waste disposal has become one of the most serious environmental problems facing many cities in Nigeria. In recent years, there has been a phenomenal increase in the volume of wastes generated in the country due to a number of reasons like increasing population, growth rate, industrialization and economic growth. This process has become such a problem that refuse dumps were to be found at various unsightly locations within urban areas. The Ondo State Integrated Waste Recycling and Treatment Project, Akure started operation in December 2006 with the aim of minimising solid waste in Akure and its environs. Since its inception, OSIWRTP has recorded huge successes in transforming the waste generated in Akure to wealth. Such wastes are being generated from agricultural waste, nylon and plastic waste and foundry (metal) waste.
The Blue Nile Issue The Blue Nile Issue Новинка

The Blue Nile Issue

Teferi shows the dynamics of the hydropolitics of the Blue Nile within the broad context of Ethiopian history. He looks at the Blue Nile as a major factor of interaction and interdependence among Ethiopia, the Sudan and Egypt. The river has been the most significant factor in determining the diplomatic posture of the powers in control of the lower basin towards Ethiopia since time immemorial. The issue has been a source of confrontation, mistrust, tension, and fear with a possibility that it might be a cause for direct hostility between the basin countries. The author argues that lack of far-sightedness particularly on the part of the powers in control of the lower basing intensified the Nile issue. The river could not be disconnected from national sentiment and treated as a common and shared natural resource among the riparian states.

Methane from Re-Activated Sludge (RAS) via Anaerobic Digestion

Waste management is a big challenge in a developing country like India. Although management processes have been devised for MSW but wastes from chemical industries, including their sludge still have dumping as the only option. I had the opportunity to work for my Master’s thesis at Vapi Waste & Effluent Management Co. Ltd in Gujarat. The work is on the waste to energy aspect of the industrial waste. Main focus of the study was to see if re-activated sludge (RAS) obtained as a waste from the effluent treatment plant can be used to generate methane using an anaerobic digester and further analyse the purity level of methane obtained from it. During the course of the experiment various parameters were studied namely, MLSS, VSS, COD, Alkalinity and VFA. The results were recorded on a daily basis and for better understanding graphs have been plotted corresponding to various results. These results helped in the vivid understanding of the working of an anaerobic system, throwing light on the operational and managerial aspect of an anaerobic sludge digester. The study also showed that this process considerably reduces the volume of solid waste being disposed to the landfill.
A Model for Sustainable Solid Waste Management A Model for Sustainable Solid Waste Management Новинка

A Model for Sustainable Solid Waste Management

America’s landfill space is quickly depleting as the population continues to experience rapid growth; as the population grows, the amount of daily waste generated increases at an alarming rate as well. In fact, by the year 2024, America would have exhausted all land areas dedicated to landfills. Currently, nationwide mandated regulations or standards to decrease the amount generated solid waste, construction waste, composting waste, or reducing waste at the source; do not exists. The following book researches effective practices that would make America's waste management systems more sustainable. In order to rate the sustainability of the management system, a score sheet was created drawing from literature written. By creating a score sheet, individual waste management systems are able to determine if they are indeed sustainable and/or in need of improvement. The City of Chicago, Illinois, was chosen as the city to be measured and has proven to have a promising future as a prototype in effective sustainable waste management practices.

Offtake Morphology and Conveyance Characterisitcs of a River

The river-bifurcation point namely the ‘Offtake’ is vital for the sustainability of a river. The sustainability also depends on the conveyance characteristics of the river-reach as a whole. This book presents the hydro-morphological analysis of the offtake and the river-reach of the Arial Khan River of Bangladesh to predict its sustainability. Analysis of historical hydrometric data and satellite images near the offtake and selected stations for both the parent Padma River and the distributary Arial Khan River has been carried out. The analysis shows that water levels and discharges are in rising trend in both the rivers. The offtake and remaining reach of the Arial Khan River which are observed to lose conveyance due to aggradations. Also, the conveyance in the reach of parent river, the Padma around the offtake and the remaining reach of the Arial Khan River was found to have a decreasing trend. The yearly development rate of char (sand bar) at the mouth of the Upper Arial Khan River is 2%. The study indicates that the sustainability of the Arial Khan River including its offtake is endangered and it is going to be the cause of sufferings to the local livelihood.

Introduction to Waste Utilisation Introduction to Waste Utilisation Новинка

Introduction to Waste Utilisation

This book is intended to provide a thorough introduction to wastes utilization and to arouse interest in the subject. Traditionally, waste is viewed as an unnecessary element arising from the activities of any industry. In reality, waste is a misplaced resource, existing at a wrong place at a wrong time. Governments have spent billions of dollars to build incineration plants and sanitary landfills. With the rate of growth in solid waste, it is not sustainable to go on building more waste disposal facilities to meet increasing amounts of waste. Moreover, building and operating new disposal facilities is very costly and could only lead to a higher refuse disposal fee. The sustainable waste management solution is to minimise waste, and maximise recycling. Such an approach would help to defer the construction of new disposal facilities, reduce the demand for land to build the facilities, and avoid unnecessary increase in the refuse disposal fee. It should be also clearly understood that waste minimisation, however attractive, is not a panacea for all environmental problems and may have to be supported by conventional treatment/disposal solutions.

Anaerobic digestion of shea waste for energy generation

Energy from waste a reliable way to reduce the negative impact on the environment, shea waste was investigated to identify its potential in methane generation through anaerobic digestion.The basic raw materials for the study were shea waste and cow dung. Input substrates were prepared to bring the substrates to the required organic dry matter concentrations. Continuous feed system, under varying hydraulic retention times (HRT) and organic dry matter (odm) concentration of the waste was used. The experimental treatments were carried out in the following phases: cow dung fermentation at 30, 45 and 60 days HRT in 3%, 5% and 7% odm;mono-fermentation of shea waste at 30, 45 and 60 days HRT in 3%, 5% and 7% odm; co-fermentation of shea waste with cow dung in proportions of 50:50, 75:25 and 90:10 by volume, at 7% odm and 30 days HRT; and co-fermentation of substrate 50:50 at 7% odm and 20 days HRT. It was observed that process stability in anaerobic digestion of the shea waste could only be achieved through co-fermenation with cow dung in ratio 50:50 by volume at 7% odm concentrated for 30 days HRT. Methane generation from shea waste is feasible and recommended for Africa in waste control

Heavy Metal Contamination and Sediment Quality

Over the last few decades environment and its pollution is the governing concern for the human being in this planet. People become conscious about the changing of their surrounding global warming. But environment is degraded day by day by the weight of overcrowded people. One of such example is Shitalakhya River which encompasses eastern periphery of Dhaka city receives uncontrolled discharge of pollution, solid waste, sewage and waste water discharged from domestic, commercial and industrial activities of the city. These waste materials are tremendously deteriorating water and sediment quality of the river. The contamination level reaches at such an alarming stage during dry periods that not only the ecosystem of the river collapse but also the treatment plants of the city based on the river water virtually losses their expected quality of production. Hence the restore of the water quality of the Shitalakhya is crucial for its sustainability. This study on Shitalakhya is approaching to assess the water and sediment quality of this river which will help to establish processing plants in future for possible remedial measures to reduce water and sediment pollutions.

Pollution of River Ravi Pollution of River Ravi Новинка

Pollution of River Ravi

The city of Lahore like other ancient cities was developed along the bank of a river, i.e. the River Ravi, currently a trans-boundary river between India and Pakistan. Therefore, since the development of Lahore city, its sewage and waste water was discharged into its adjacent river. However, the population explosion, urbanization, unplanned industrialization, broad scale use of synthetic fertilizers and household chemicals consequently deteriorate the water quality of the River Ravi due to significant discharge of wastewater from the metropolitan city of Lahore into it. As a result, the contaminated water of the Ravi not only affects the aquatic ecosystem of the river but also worsen its water used downstream for the irrigation, livestock, aqua-culture and recreational purposes. It is therefore essential to estimate the pollution load from the urban city entering into River Ravi in order to prevent and control the degradation of water quality of the River Ravi and help the researchers, decision makers, and the academics to evaluate the cause and pollution status of the most polluted river of Pakistan.

Municipal Waste Plastics to Different Categories of Fuel

Waste plastics found in our landfill are renewable energy sources that are capable of producing energy. After plastics are used and discarded, they become a problem for the environment and they are very troublesome to get rid of. Waste plastics are non-biodegradable so, they occupy landfill for a long period of time. When waste plastic come in contact with light and starts photo degrading, it starts releasing harmful compounds like carbon monoxide, nitrogen sulfide and sulfur dioxide in to the atmosphere. Drastic actions are taken against waste plastics management by city authorities all over the world. NSR has developed a thermal cracking method with fractional distillation to convert waste plastics into a liquid hydrocarbon fuels. The thermal degradation of waste plastic was studied at moderate temperatures 100-450 °C under an atmosphere and under atmospheric pressure using a-batch process operation. The products obtain five different category liquid hydrocarbon fuels. The average yield of produce fuels 90%, gas 6% and residue 4% and no catalytic process. The fuel can be produced at low cost, since the resource is already at disposal.

Use of waste pyrite from mineral processing plants in soil remediation

This book includes the results of an investigation of the use of waste pyrite as an alternative to gypsum for alkali soil amelioration. Tailings from sulfide mines usually contain large amount of pyrite (FeS2), which is a potential pollutant. Therefore, waste pyrite must be disposed off under strictly controlled conditions. On the other hand, pyrite may be a remediation additive for alkali soils to increase the availability of essential micronutrients for plant growth and thus increase the dry matter yield; and to adjust the pH and/or soil chemistry because of its acid generating capacity. This book presents that pyritic tailings from a copper concentration plant can be effectively used in alkali soil amelioration with no deleterious heavy metal contamination.

With only 10 days to go before Englands crucial World Cup Qualifier against Germany, national manager Glenn Gould resigns, blaming Brendon Fendon, the FAs Machiavellian chief executive, of taking an unhealthy interest in team affairs. A shortlist of temporary replacement managers is drawn up -- the instant favourite is Ron Atkinson. Brendan Fendon leaves for Brazil to attend a career-enhancing FIFA conference on the elasticity of corner flags. Meanwhile, Nottingham plumber and Sunday League manager Reg Atkinson is concerned that his tender for the undersoil heating contract at the new Wembley stadium will be lost in the latest crisis to hit the England team. But he is soon reassured by a call from the FA asking him to an interview. Reg quickly hones his knowledge of the Swedish undersoil heating system and heads for London. After a swift selection process, Brendan Fendons stand-in Sir Richard Scratcher appoints Atkinson and calls a press conference to announce the new England boss.
