Waste’s footprint on the environment can also come from the pollutants generated during the recycling process or waste management. Discover how air filtration solutions can minimise the effects of those processes on air quality.
Waste management can be challenging for several reasons. There can be different levels of harmfulness depending on the waste. Apart from paper, textiles or plastics, recycling electronics or batteries can result in toxic fumes, while some precious metals recovery could be necessary during the process.
The process itself can be harmful to the environment. Incineration or landfilling can cause damage, as well as other techniques used in the separation or waste shredding in facilities.
Dust and particles can be generated in several mechanical processes in waste management. Rotating trommel screens as well as optical sorting usually release significant volumes of dust during the fall, which in addition to the air blown for ejection, can become a contaminant if not efficiently removed.
Higher dust flow rates are released even during shredding with crushers and in size separations made in waste management facilities. These concentrations require ventilation systems to reduce environmental emissions and to maintain safe working conditions for operators.
Odour elimination is also important, and in this operation dust collectors are also key to remove the dust that can slow down the performance of the odour elimination systems.
Apart from being a contaminant, the dust generated in some waste management applications, such as grinding, can damage nearby electrical cabinets and other equipment. Learn more about how to improve your process while reducing emissions and ensuring a cleaner workplace.
