Agglomeration: Controlling pollution and permitting waste recycling
Are stringent pollution controls and rising landfill costs changing the way you think about handling your bulk solids processing and production wastes? While agglomeration provides well-known benefits in many applications, an increasingly popular application is to enlarge particles of waste material to control pollutants and permit recycling.
In this article, an agglomeration consultant discusses the origins and characteristics of particulate wastes, agglomeration's role in environmental protection, how to characterize your particulate waste, and how to select an agglomeration method. Final sections cover application examples and costs, and related information provides some agglomeration basics.
