Energetic valorization of waste tires
(Elsevier B.V., 2017-02-01)
Significant high levels of available waste tires in Brazil, which reached approximately 473 thousand tons in 2015, offer an attractive potential for their use as fuel in advanced thermal conversion processes. Technologies ...
Bioproduction of carotenoid compounds using two-phase olive mill waste as the substrate
The olive oil production process by the two-phase centrifugal system generates a waste named “alperujo”, which has a high percentage of water (65%) and contains phenolic compounds. These compounds are phytotoxic and pollute ...
Potential of biohydrogen production from effluents of citrus processing industry using anaerobic bacteria from sewage sludge
Citrus crops are among the most abundant crops in the world, which processing is mainly based on juice extraction, generating large amounts of effluents with properties that turn them into potential pollution sources if ...
Management strategies and valorization for waste sludge from active treatment of extremely metal-polluted acid mine drainage: A contribution for sustainable mining
This study assesses the environmental impact and the potential valorization of metal-sludge waste generated by the active neutralization of extremely metal-polluted acid mine drainage (AMD). To this end, two regulated ...
Valorization of citrus waste: Use in catalysis for the oxidation of sulfides
(Scrivener Publishing, 2017-02)
The utilization and valorization of industrial waste is an effective strategy for environmental protection. Since the juice industry generates a huge amount of citrus waste, we studied the application of thermally treated ...
Use of slag/sugar cane bagasse ash (SCBA) blends in the production of alkali-activated materials
Blast furnace slag (BFS)/sugar cane bagasse ash (SCBA) blends were assessed for the production of alkali-activated pastes and mortars. SCBA was collected from a lagoon in which wastes from a sugar cane industry were poured. ...
Valorization of Different Wastes and Their Use for the Design of Multifunctional Eco-catalysts
The desire to protect the environment for futuregenerations has led to the reutilization of all recoverableand recyclable wastes. Consequently, different residuesfrom various sources were collected to make mixed compoundsto ...
