Material recovery by conversion to oil
© Wasteconsult International (5/2017)
Catalytic Tribochemical Conversion (CTC) is a process for direct liquefaction. It works at temperatures < 400 °C. By using a catalyst as a consumable in a closed system, various carbon containing materials (e. g. biomass, solid recovered fuels) can be converted into a storable, multi usable energy carrier. This carrier can be used as resource for the industry or post-treated to produce a norm-related diesel fuel.

Investigations of Site-Contaminations in China: Initial Site-Contamination-Investigation and -Remediation in China
© Deutscher Fachverlag (DFV) (6/2010)
Currently in China there is proceeding a serious intensification of the environmental law relating to future critical limit values and the obligation of accompanying measures. Also in China the assessment of possible financial relevant features of sites like hazardous waste contaminations and groundwater pollution is becoming more important. Nowerdays, the investigation concerning contaminations of sites in China is becoming necessary and interesting for German investors. Meanwhile, in the course of all-embracing Due-Diligence-examinations for site assessments in China for a German investor the R&H Umwelt GmbH from Nuremberg/Germany (R&H) already has performed several initial site-contamination-investigations including the initial investigation of the building-substance on industrial sites.

Hard work for the microbes: Soil remediation in a tank farm
© Deutscher Fachverlag (DFV) (6/2010)
In a tank farm in Belém (Brazil) the soil was found to be highly contaminated. With the help of a biological process this soil is remediated by microbes and then reused at the site. Because the process was originally developed in Germany, it had to be adapted to suit the local climate. The entire operating crew are subject to the tank farm's technical safety regulations, which comply with international standards and are strictly implemented.
