How does co-processing work?

How does co-processing work?

Co-processing is a waste management system in which waste materials are converted into alternative fuels and/or raw materials. In TONTOTON’s case, co-processing refers to the use of a cement kiln to cleanly burn plastic waste as an alternative energy source while utilizing the ash leftovers in the cement itself.

What is meant by co-processing in MSW?

Co-processing refers to the use of waste materials in industrial processes as alternative fuels or raw material (AFR) to recover energy and material from them. Due to the high temperature in cement kiln, different types of wastes can be effectively disposed without harmful emissions.

What is co-processing of hazardous waste?

Co-processing of hazardous waste in the cement industry. Co-processing is the term used to describe the introduction of alternative fuels and raw materials into a standard cement production process, rather than using conventional fuels and raw materials (PNUMA, 2012; WBCSD, 2014).

What is co-processing fuel?

Co-processing refers to the simultaneous transformation of biogenic feedstocks and intermediate petroleum distillates such as vacuum gas oil (VGO) in existing petroleum refinery process units to produce finished fuels.

What is the meaning of Geocycle?

Geo means ‘earth’ in Greek. Cycle evokes recycling. But it also suggests a larger process – the regenerative cycle in nature where waste materials are the foundation for creating new life. The name Geocycle alludes to the ‘holistic’ nature of what we do: turning waste into energy and recycled materials.

Which type of following waste can be co processed?

Examples of waste that can be co-processed

  • Used tires.
  • Various solid waste in plastic barrels.
  • Shredded solid waste.

Why cement kiln is suitable for co-processing of hazardous waste?

Thus the co-processing of hazardous substances in cement industry is much beneficial option, whereby hazardous wastes are not only destroyed at a higher temperature of around 14000C and longer residence time but its inorganic content gets fixed with the clinker apart from using the energy content of the wastes.

What is co-processing refinery?

Co-processing is a process where biogenic feedstocks are co-processed with petroleum intermediate products such as vacuum gas oil to produce renewable hydrocarbon fuels. The biogenic feedstocks suitable for co-processing include upgraded pyrolysis oil, vegetable oil, used cooking oil and animal fat/tallow.

What is co-processing renewable diesel?

Co-Processed Renewable Diesel: Renewable diesel that is produced when an oil company adds small amounts vegetable oils or animal fats to the traditional petroleum refining process when producing diesel fuel (co- processing). Scheduled to be produced in existing oil refineries.

Who owns Geocycle?

Geocycle is one of the largest industrial waste management solutions providers in the world, and is a collaborating subsidiary of LafargeHolcim, the largest building materials company in the world.

What is SCF in waste management?

“Duties of the industrial units especially Cement Plants and Waste to Energy Plants for usage of Segregated. Combustible Fractions (SCF) and/or rDF” “the cement plants located within 400 km from a solid waste-based rDF plant shall make necessary arrangements.
