Waste management is a complex process that covers many different activities. Each of these activities should be addressed with care and diligence in order to prevent any adverse effects on the environment and achieve a more effective and sustainable use of all resources. Waste disposal is one of the essential stages in waste management, there are many methods and from of waste disposal, and Edison Technologies can help you, providing effective solutions.
Waste sorting is the process by which waste is separated into different elements,usually based on its nature. Waste sorting can occur manually at the household, or automatically separated in materials recovery facilities or mechanical biological treatment systems. Hand sorting was the first method used in the history of waste sorting. The chosen method of sorting will depend on many factors such as the nature of the waste, the ease of segregation and the yield and quality of the resultant recyclates. Edison Technologies can developed high-end sorting facilities for you to minimized manual labor and improve performance.
A landfill site (also known as a tip, dump, rubbish dump) is a site for the disposal of waste materials by burial. It is the oldest form of waste treatment. Some landfills are also used for waste management purposes, such as the temporary storage, consolidation and transfer, or processing of waste material. Typically, operators of well-run landfills for non-hazardous waste meet predefined specifications by applying techniques to:
- confine waste to as small an area as possible
- compact waste to reduce volume
- cover waste with layers of soil or other types of material such as woodchips and fine particles
Incineration is a disposal method in which solid organic wastes are subjected to combustion so as to convert them into residue and gaseous products. Edison Technologies has been working in this field since 2004.
This method is useful for disposal of both municipal solid waste and solid residue from waste water treatment. Incineration is carried out both on a small scale by individuals and on a large scale by industry. It is used to dispose of solid, liquid and gaseous waste. It is recognized as a practical method of disposing of certain hazardous waste materials such as biological medical waste. Incineration method is common in many countries.
Recycling is the process where it converts waste into useful products to prevent energy usage and consumption of raw materials. Resource recovery is the process of taking useful discarded items for a specific next use. These discarded items are then processed to extract or recover materials and resources or convert them to energy in the form of useable heat, electricity or fuel.
