technologies for recycling “spent,” or used nuclear fuel, nuclear power could also become truly sustainable and essentially inexhaustible. Argonne National Laboratory pioneered the development of pyrochemical processing, or pyroprocessing, a high-temperature method of recycling reactor waste into fuel.
Technology Fund under cluster TA CDTA 0017 Promoting Sustainable Energy for All for Asia and the Pacific. The report is a result of the team effort led by Stephen Peters, senior energy specialist (waste to energy), Energy Sector Group, Sector Advisory Service Cluster (SDSC-ENE), Sustainable Development
An Analysis of SMART for CT Municipalities (Waste Zero 2016-2018) CT DEEP Checklist for earning points through Sustainable CT, a statewide program run by the Institute for Sustainable Energy at Eastern Connecticut State University. Sustainable CT inspires and supports communities to become more efficient, resilient, and inclusive.
Sep 23, 2021 · As part of EPA’s effort to promote flexible, innovative ways to convert waste to energy, EPA finalized an exclusion to RCRA’s regulation for oil-bearing hazardous waste generated at a petroleum refinery in January 2008. This exclusion ensures that the gasification of these materials will have the same regulatory status (i.e., excluded) as other oil-bearing hazardous waste reinserted into the petroleum refining process.
Dec 01, 2017 · Biomass wastes can be transformed into clean energy and/or fuels by a variety of technologies, ranging from conventional combustion process to state-of-the art thermal depolymerization technology. Besides recovery of substantial energy, these technologies can lead to a substantial reduction in the overall waste quantities requiring final disposal, which can be better managed for safe disposal
6 hours ago · Well-planned decommissioning of nuclear facilities and effective waste management are necessary for the sustainability of nuclear energy, IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi said today at the Sellafield site, home to the world’s first commercial reactor and now the centre of the United Kingdom’s decommissioning efforts.
Connecticut is looking to the future of waste management. CT DEEP and municipalities from across the state are joining together to form the Connecticut Coalition for Sustainable Materials Management (CCSMM) and explore ways to reduce the amount of waste that is generated in our state, improve recycling and organics collection, and other innovative solutions.
Nov 03, 2021 · The catalytic process used in this experiment on plastic waste could also be used to process other wastes, such as manure, municipal solid waste, and used engine oil, to make usable energy products.
‘Waste’ Management vs Resource Management Energy from ‘Waste’ (EFW) ‘Waste’ to Energy (WTE) vs Energy Recovery ‘Waste’ ‘Post‐consumer Packaging’ “something rejected, worthless, A previously used resource which. . . of no value” vs still has value
We aim to implement a flexible waste management system incrementally to ensure safe and secure operations, gain trust among stakeholders, and adapt operations based on lessons learned. To support this waste management system, the United States will need robust capabilities in the transportation, storage, and disposal of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste.
Electronics impact the environment and human health. Fabricating and shipping electronics use water and energy, and often create industrial waste. The disposal of electronics results in a massive amount of waste going into landfills. Toxins, commonly found in electronics, can leak into the soil or release into the air through burning.
Jun 23, 2020 · Waste Disposal & Sustainable Energy, 1. [PMC free article] Mihai F-C. Assessment of COVID-19 waste flows during the emergency state in romania and related public health and environmental concerns. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. 2020; 17 (15):5439. doi: 10.3390/ijerph17155439.
Nuclear Energy and Sustainable Development. Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own. As a concept it is holistic, considering equity across countries and generations, and requiring the balancing of often-competing environmental, social
waste recycling issues in waste-to-energy planning, and socio-environmental health issues due to emerging contaminants. Studies in this area include: a framework for sustainability indicators, an indicator framework of solid waste management systems, environmental lifecycle
Today we are diverting about 54% of our municipal solid waste stream to recycling, composting, or reuse. To help us achieve zero waste: put compostable and recyclable materials into the right bins, reduce usage of packaging, plastics, and single-use products, and use more reusables!
