How to Deal with Paper Mill Waste?How to Deal with Paper Mill Waste?

Do you know how the paper we use every day is produced? Whether it is office paper, living paper, corrugated paper boxes, etc., paper is really important in our life. Traditional paper is produced from pulp. However, with the deepening of environmental protection concepts and the promotion of environmental protection policies, recycled paper has been slowly replacing traditional pulp paper. The rise of recycled paper has great significance for environmental protection and resource recovery. However, in the process of recycled paper making, a large amount of paper mill waste will be produced. According to statistics, the paper mill waste produced by a recycled paper mill accounts for about 12% of the recycled paper production. For example, a recycled paper mill with an annual output of 1 million tons will produce about 120 thousand tons of paper mill waste every year. If these paper mill residues are not properly treated, they will have a great impact on the environment, thus losing the significance of the

Paper Industry Waste Shredder, AIShred Machine Turning Waste into ResourcesPaper Industry Waste Shredder, AIShred Machine Turning Waste into Resources

Modern society has a huge demand for paper. In recent years, as environmental protection efforts have increased, traditional pulp and paper making has been greatly reduced and replaced by more environmentally friendly recycled paper making. However, due to the different ways and quality of waste paper recycling, recycled waste paper may be mixed with other impurities, resulting in a large amount of solid waste in the manufacturing process of recycled paper, also known as "recycled paper sludge". Paper waste can be divided into two categories: coarse material and fine material. Coarse material mainly from the pulping and slagging stage, mostly stranded rope; fine material mainly from the cleaning and screening stage, fine material can be divided into light slag and heavy slag. After a reasonable process, most of the screened slag can be made into SRF fuel, which is used for incineration and power generation. The waste shredding and processing system of environmental friendly paper mill adopts cutting-edge

MSW Disposal Equipment for saleMSW Disposal Equipment for sale

MSW (municipal solid waste) disposal is divided into two forms: General pretreatment and resource utilization. For example, each waste transfer station only needs crushers and magnetic separators if it only provides waste pretreatment and transfer to the centralized Center for resource utilization. First, the domestic waste is crushed into smaller particles by the domestic waste shredder for convenient storage and transportation, and then the ferrous metals are magnetically separated, so that the processed materials can be packed and transported. It is efficient and convenient, and is very suitable for small and medium-sized waste treatment plants to pretreat the collected domestic waste and transfer it. If we want to make deep resource utilization of domestic waste, we need more sorting equipment. For example, domestic waste crushers are also divided into coarse crushers and fine crushers. After coarse crushing, roller screens are used for coarse screening to separate small pieces of heavy materials such as

Municipal Solid Waste Solution: Landfill, Composting and IncinerationMunicipal Solid Waste Solution: Landfill, Composting and Incineration

At present, there are three main treatment methods for municipal solid waste(MSW): landfill, composting and incineration. Landfilling usually involves burying domestic waste directly underground to allow them to decompose naturally; The composting method requires the use of equipment to break the organic matter in the domestic waste, and then explain the organic matter to make compost; Incineration is the process of crushing and sorting domestic waste, or directly burning it for power generation, or making it into RDF combustion rod, which is basically thermal energy conversion. These three methods are widely used at present, and each has its advantages and disadvantages. Landfill occupies land resources, composting process is complex, and incineration needs to strengthen flue gas treatment. At present, there are more environmentally friendly new technologies, such as hydrogen production from domestic waste. No matter which of the above domestic waste treatment methods is used, it is for the purpose of

Hammer Mills for Waste and RecyclingHammer Mills for Waste and Recycling

A hammermill is a common type of equipment currently used for size reduction of solid waste. A hammermill consists of a central rotor or shaft with radial arms (hammers) protruding from the rotor circumference. The rotor is enclosed in a heavy duty housing, which may be lined with abrasion resistant steel members. Some hammermilIs may also have stationary breaker plates or cutter bars mounted inside the housing. Input material is reduced in size by impact, attrition, and shearing forces induced by the hammers. There are two basic types of hammermiIls: the horizontal shaft type and vertical shaft type. The horizontal shaft hammermill is the more common type. As the name implies, the rotor or shaft is horizontal and supported on each end. Input is usually at the top and material flows through the machine assisted by gravity. Force feed at the side of the hammermill has also been used for solid waste shredding. Most horizontal hammermiIls have a grate placed across the output opening. Input material cannot pass

A wet pulper is similar in design and operation to a common household blender. In operation, a slurry of about 90 percent water and 10 percent solid waste is placed in the pulper. The interior of the pul per may be lined with protruding hardened impact pins, but often the interior is a smooth surface. A central rotating element (either a disk or a set of blades) spins at high speed (peripheral speed of 5,000 ft/min) forming a vortex or whirlpool in the siurry. Repeated impact of the solids with the rotating element reduces the solid waste to a pulp. Unpulpable iterns, such as rubber tires are bal1istically rejected. Wet pulpers can operate as a batch process or a continuous process. After pulping, the slurry is removed from the pulper; and the majority of the water is removed by squeezing and is reused. The wet pulper and dry shredding system are not generally interchangeable in application. The wet system requires extensive auxiliary equipment for addition and removal of water and this equipment is not

Size Reduction of Municipal Solid WasteSize Reduction of Municipal Solid Waste

Size reduction is defined as operations or processes which reduce the size of influent materials through division into two or more subunits. Size reduction of municipal solid wastes (often called shredding, grinding, or pulverizing) is a new concept, and much of the technology has been borrowed from the mining and rock-crushing industry. Because solid waste is a heterogeneous mixture(unlike rock), much of the technology is not directly transferable; and size reduction of solid waste has not always been efficient; however,as more solid waste systems have been built, the technoloqy of solid waste size reduction has been sianificantly advanced. More than 2.01 billion tonnes of municipal solid waste are produced annually worldwide. Land areas suitable for land disposal near urban areas where the bulk of the solid waste is generated are becoming scarce and expensive. Open burning and open dumping have been outlawed in many areas because of pollution and health hazards. Incineration is becoming increasingly more

Energy Recovery from Municipal Solid Waste

Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) contains organic as well as inorganic matter. The latent energy present in its organic fraction can be recovered for gainful utilisation through adoption of suitable Waste Processing and Treatment technologies. The recovery of energy from wastes also offers a few additional benefits as follows:The total quantity of waste gets reduced by nearly 60% to over 90%, depending upon the waste composition and the adopted technologyDemand for land, which is already scarce in cities, for landfilling is reducedThe cost of transportation of waste to far-away landfill sites also gets reduced proportionatelyNet reduction in environmental pollutionEnergy can be recovered from the organic fraction of waste (biodegradable as well as non-biodegradable) basically through two methods as follows:Thermo-chemical conversion: This process entails thermal de-composition of organic matter to produce either heat energy or fuel oil or gas;Bio-chemical conversion: This process is based on enzymatic

Biomedical Waste Harmless Treatment Methods

Biomedical waste originates from human or animal health care, medical research, medical teaching facilities, laboratories and other facilities. A portion of that waste stream is infectious or potentially infectious and presents a potential hazard to the public health and the environment. Before biomedical waste is recycled or landfilled, it must be treated in a harmless manner, and toxic and infectious materials must be thoroughly sterilized. Generally speaking, the harmless treatment of medical waste includes the following methods:IncinerationThis is a high temperature thermal process employing combustion of the waste under controlled condition for converting them into inert material and gases. Incinerators can be oil fired or electrically powered or a combination thereof. Broadly, three types of incinerators are used for hospital waste : multiple hearth type, rotary kiln and controlled air types. All the types can have primary and secondary combustion chambers to ensure optimal combustion. Incineration has

Municipal Solid Waste Recycling Methods

Biological or thermal treatment of municipal solid waste can result in recovery of useful products such as compost or energy.Biological ProcessesBiological treatment involves using micro-organisms to decompose the biodegradable components of waste. Two types of processes are used, namely:Aerobic processes: Windrow composting, aerated static pile composting and in-vessel composting; vermi-culture etc.Anaerobic processes: Low-solids anaerobic digestion (wet process), highsolids anaerobic digestion (dry process) and combined processesIn the aerobic process the utilisable product is compost. In the anaerobic process the utilisable product is methane gas (for energy recovery). Both processes have been used for waste processing in different countries – a majority of the biological treatment process adopted world-wide are aerobic composting; the use of anaerobic treatment has been more limited.Thermal ProcessesThermal treatment involves conversion of waste into gaseous, liquid and solid conversion products with

Solid Waste Sorting Plant Introduction

Accordingly the waste should be divided into the following streams:Dry RecyclablesConstruction and demolition wasteBiodegradable wasteBulky WasteHazardous wasteMixed MSW (often referred to as comingled waste)Waste Sorting PlantMixed waste should be sorted into the various streams either at a transfer station or at a centralised sorting facility. If this is not feasible, mixed waste can be sent to a waste processing facility which has a well designed pre-sorting/post-sorting facility where the mixed waste can be sorted into separate streams. Mixed waste not found suitable for processing should be landfilled.Waste Sorting Plant ProcessSorting can be carried out manually or through semi-mechanised and fully mechanised systems.Manual Sortingunloading the wastemanually (with protective measures) spreading the wastehand picking (with protective measures) visually identifiable waste for

Construction and Demolition Waste RecyclingConstruction and Demolition Waste Recycling

Construction and demolition (C&D) waste generally constitutes about 10%–20% of total urban solid waste, it includes bricks, tiles, stone, soil, rubble, plaster, drywall or gypsum board, wood, plumbing fixtures, non-hazardous insulating material, plastics, wall paper, glass, metal (e.g., steel, aluminium), asphalt, etc. C&D and other inert waste may be utilised for making bricks, pavement blocks, construction materials such as aggregates etc.The use of C&D waste will minimise the cost of managing such waste and requirement for valuable landfill space, and also save natural resources and reduce the use of virgin soil. Benefits of Processing C&D WasteC&D waste can be put to a profitable use, given the scarcity of sand and stone for construction, thereby saving natural resources.It prevents public nuisance and traffic congestion issues arising from indiscriminate dumping of C&D waste.It saves valuable space at landfill sites.It reduces cost of bulk transportation if recycled close to source of generation.C&D

Scrap Tires to TDF with AIShred ShreddersScrap Tires to TDF with AIShred Shredders

Waste tires have great value and can turn them into alternative fuels used in cement kilns, power plants, steel mills, called TDF(Tire Derived Fuel), which reduces threats from unlawful stockpiling, while also creating economic profits. How is TDF produced?In simple terms, processing of discarded scrap tires into TDF consists of three main steps: shredding, screening and metal removal. The level of each is determined by the end user's needs and specifications (i.e., size of shreds and amount of metal removed). For shredding of scrap tires, equipment for tire processing generally comes in two types - slow speed and high-speed shredder. Slow speed shredder or rotary shear shredder is used to produce the larger chip sizes suitable for applications such as cement kilns, shearing the tire into 2 to 5-inch size shreds and liberating between 2 and 10 percent of the bead wire contained within the tire. The high speed single shaft shredder contains a rotor equipped with knives that shred the tire until they are of

Domestic Waste Pretreatment Production LineDomestic Waste Pretreatment Production Line

The composition of domestic waste is different in different regions, seasons and periods. It mainly includes kitchen waste, paper waste, waste textile waste, plastic waste, residue waste, waste metal waste and waste glass. At present, in most areas of China, domestic waste is mainly collected in a mixed way without effective classification, so domestic waste will contain a large number of organic components such as kitchen waste, accounting for 50% - 60%. The high content of kitchen waste also leads to the low calorific value of waste in China, which is generally only about 4000-4800kj / kg. This can easily lead to the failure to improve the calorific value of the back-end boiler, and the need to add coal and other combustion aids to improve the calorific value. In view of this situation, AIShred has launched a complete set of domestic waste pretreatment production line, which can fully solve the problem of complex composition of domestic waste, sort out the recyclable materials in the domestic waste for
