TAF Industrial Consulting - Chemical Waste Experts
Our experience in handling industrial liquid and hazardous waste goes back to 1969. That was a time when new regulations started to force changes to the "waste disposal" business, which was typically run by trucking companies which had near zero understanding of what the wastes consisted of.
Today, it is necessary to have a sound background in chemistry to be in the hazardous industrial waste business. This, together with experience, is what Chemical Waste Experts offer. A thorough knowledge of regulations, such as Ont. Reg 347, Reg. 419 and TDG, is mandatory.
We prepare Environmental Compliance Approvals (ECA) Applications, including Design & Operations Reports, Emission Summary and Dispersion Modelling Reports (ESDM Reports) and Noise Screening Reports. In addition, we develop database systems for waste business management. Handle a piece of information only once. The multi-user database is a very powerful front end to accounting software. Scale to several hundred concurrent users.
Databases can also be used to manage Safety Data Sheets (SDS). Enter CAS data and be alerted to various regulatory requirements. Automate calculation of reportable quantities for National Pollution Release Inventory (NPRI). Track chemical usage for TRA (Toxics Reduction Act) purposes.
Anyone planning to establish a waste transfer/processing facility will benefit by using the expertise of TAF Industrial Consulting for approvals applications, process design, waste profiling, databases, laboratory procedures and generator identification.
Excess Soil Management Plans (ESMP) and Dust Management Plans are available from TAF Industrial Consulting.
Waste Water Evaporation the better way…
Evaporation is an economical and practical processing method for water contaminated with substances that cannot be removed using conventional chemical/physical or biological methods. Fire-tubes in evaporators scale, corrode and create thermal de-composition products. These de-composition products usually become an odour problem. Direct gas to liquid heat transfer evaporators do not have these problems. Another advantage of the direct heat transfer evaporator is that waste heat, in the form of hot gas, can be used as an energy source. Waste heat from co-generation systems serves this purpose well. The ultimate in energy efficiency is where hot combustion gases from "lean aqueous liquid incineration" are used as energy source for evaporation. Evaporator also functions as a scrubber in this situation. Waste Derived Fuel (WDF) can also be an energy source for the evaporators.
Emissions from the evaporator can be minimized by stripping VOC type substances from the feed. This is a simple and inexpensive process. Partial energy recovery is an option.
About "Global Warming" and Carbon Dioxide
One of the greatest threats to mankind today is that the world may be choked by an explosively pervading but well camouflaged bureaucracy. --Norman Borlaug (1914-2009)
