      Benjamin W. Haynes Antimony, arsenic, and mercury in the combustible fraction of municipal solid waste by Benjamin W. Haynes Published by . The Bureau of Mines conducted research to devise technology for increasing the nation's mineral supply by recovering valuable constituents from currently discarded waste materials. Municipal solid waste (MSW), presently a major disposal problem, represents a significant source of metals, glass, and a combustible fraction that can be used to.

    1. Introduction. It is clear that chlorine (Cl) and sulfur (S) in municipal solid waste (MSW) are sources of acidic pollutants during combustion, and are also the key elements in the formation of chlorinated organic compounds, e.g. dioxins (Tuppurainen et al., ; Gullett et al., ).Chlorine is essential for the formation of those compounds, while, in contrast the reductive property of Cited by: 2. The typical composition of municipal solid wastes in the US excluding yard waste, ashes and masonry is shown in the following table including percent of wet weight, wet density, and moisture as discarded for each component: Based on above analysis, calculate: a. The weight percent of each component on a dry weight basis. b.

    Antimony, arsenic, and mercury in the combustible fraction of municipal solid waste. [Benjamin W Haynes; James C McConnell; Stephen L Law; United States. Bureau of Mines.]. Each year the United States produces over than million tons of municipal solid wastes (MSW) of which roughly percent is combusted in modern waste to energy (WTE) facilities (Simmons et al. ). This process allows for the recovery of valuable energy and metals that would otherwise be lost from the productive lifecycle of material Size: KB.

With the national focus on energy, the combustible fraction of urban refuse is being extensively considered as a fuel supplement for coal in the generation of heat and power.

The objective of these analytical studies by the Bureau of Mines was to determine the concentration of major, minor, and trace elements in the combustible fractions.

This research was conducted as part of the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines program to recover metals, glass, and a combustible fraction from municipal solid waste (MSW).

The combustible fraction of municipal solid waste is an important fuel supplement for meeting part of our national energy needs. This paper discusses the ongoing characterization program of municipal solid waste conducted by the Bureau of Mines in providing some of the essential data required to evaluate the possible environmental impact of using refuse-derived fuels.

Introduction. The final disposal of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) is still a problem in many countries, including European countries. The increasing price of raw materials as well as the lack of space for new landfills, the problems arising from leachate and the restrictions imposed by the European regulations mean that a number of waste strategies have been produced and are awaiting Cited by: Nevertheless, it is apparent that the variability of trace metal content in solid waste is quite broad.
