Research show some PFAS destroyed, others created at Manchester incinerator
Fred McNeill, chief engineer at the Manchester wastewater treatment plant, seen here giving a tour in April 2021, says he is annoyed that Ohio research company Battelle didn’t release the complete results of its research on emissions at the plant. DAVID LANE/UNION LEADER The air emissions pipe from the Manchester wastewater treatment plant, as seen […]United States, New Hampshire Incineration
Management of Solid Waste Containing Fluoride—A Review
Abstract Technological and economic development have influenced the amount of post-production waste. Post-industrial waste, generated in the most considerable amount, includes, among others, waste related to the mining, metallurgical, and energy industries. Various non-hazardous or hazardous wastes can be used to produce new construction materials after the “solidification/stabilization” processes. They can be used as admixtures […]International Aluminum Industry Brick Kilns Coal Industry Electronics Industry Incineration Nuclear Industry Oil Refineries Pesticides Pharmaceuticals Phosphate Industry Plastics Steel Industry Water Treatment
Transformation and migration mechanism of fluorine-containing pollutants in the pyrolysis process of spent lithium-ion battery.
Highlights Adsorption of electrodes to electrolyte can lead to fluorine-containing residues. Melting PVDF prevents the deep removal of fluorine-containing pollutants. A synergistic transformation mechanism of fluorine during pyrolysis is proposed. Abstract Pyrolysis is an effective method to remove organics (e.g. electrolytes and binders) from spent lithium-ion battery (LIB). In this study, the co-pyrolysis characteristics of […]International Batteries Incineration
3M pays $80,000 over handling of hazardous waste in Cottage Grove
Leaking of “extremely toxic” hydrofluoric acid cited among problems. 3M’s Cottage Grove manufacturing facility 3M Co. paid $80,000 for numerous alleged hazardous waste violations at its Cottage Grove plant and incinerator, according to an enforcement action the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) announced Wednesday. At issue was a release of “extremely toxic” hydrofluoric acid, a […]United States, Minnesota Incineration

Action Alert: EPA Searching for Incinerators to Quickly Conduct an Experiment On PFAS in Emissions.
Contact Your State Environmental Commissioner to Stop This From Happening in Your State The Issue: While the disposal of PFAS chemicals poses serious challenges, the rush to burn these chemicals is on, despite no evidence they can be safely incinerated. EPA is trying to find an incinerator to be part of an experiment regarding PFAS […]United States, National USA Human experiments Incineration Perfluorinated chemicals
[Investigation and Analysis of Occupational Hazards and Control Measures in Waste Incineration Power Generation Enterprises]
Abstract in English, article in Chinese: Objective: To investigate occupational hazards in waste incineration power generation enterprises. Methods: From May 2016 to September 2018, four garbage incineration power generation enterprises in different regions and scales were selected as the survey objects. Investigated and analyzed the types of occupational hazards, workplace distribution and occupational disease […]International Incineration
Toxic PFAS Fallout Found Near Incinerator in Upstate New York
PFAS contamination was found in soil and water near an incinerator in New York state that has been burning firefighting foam for the Department of Defense. Industrial chemicals known as PFAS have contaminated soil and water near an incinerator in upstate New York that has been burning firefighting foam. The facility is run by Norlite, […]United States, New York Incineration Perfluorinated chemicals
