Turn wastes into useful products

In this article, we going to see waste management and how different types of wastes are turned into useful products. We already know the waste management involves special attention to protect our environment from various pollution. Proper waste management restricts the people who throw the wastes in the open place and make them use the waste collection bags or recycling bags to dispose of the wastes. Throwing any kind of wastes in the open environment brings more diseases and affects environmental health. Let’s check what are the chances are there to convert these wastes into useful products.

What are the major sources of wastes?

Before move on to the conversion of waste materials first, see what are the major sources of wastes from the different places.

Waste products

1. Wastes from the Municipal

Wastes from the household and commercial places like schools, showrooms, restaurants are considered municipal wastes. The wastes include broken plastic water bottles, bags, shoes. old clothes, used furniture, food wraps, and used papers.

2. Wastes from the Medical 

Wastes from health care centers and nursing homes are known to be medical wastes. The medical wastes include medicines, syringes, needles, used cotton, and other medical products.

3. Wastes from the Automobiles 

The gas emission from the various automobiles due to the petrol combustion. Also, the old vehicle and scarp materials are considered automobile wastes.

4. Wastes from the Industries

The wastes from the various industries are considered industry wastes. The fossils, fuels, smoke, sewage water, and scrap materials are the industrial wastes.

5. Wastes from the Construction Feild 

The wastes from the different construction activities and building processes are considered construction wastes. Construction waste involves cement, concrete blocks, metal pipes, iron rods, and building materials.

How to recycle waste material into useful products?

The waste materials are converted into useful products through a proper recycling process. The used glass materials, papers, metals, and furniture things are recycled and reused in some other way. The waste materials are transferred into the recycling center with the help of the waste collection or rubbish collection team. The waste products are picked up at right time and reprocessed into new material with the help of a waste clearance company. Usually, recycling involves the collection, processing, manufacturing, and marketing. Another important thing is the recyclable and non-recyclable wastes are collected in a separate collection bag to avoid confusion. Let’s see what waste products are into useful products.

Water :

The recycled water is used for the agriculture process, industrial process, bathroom flush, and cleaning process.

Used Cloths:

The used clothes are used as rugs, mats, and also used for cleaning cars, furniture, and another vehicle.

Concreate:

Wood Products:

The waste wood products like used furniture are used to generate fuel, used as raw materials for making new furniture.

Glass Bottles:

Glass Bottles like used water bottles, or other food products are used as showcase pieces or used to grow indoor plants.

Different Types of Commercial Wastes

The commercial wastes are categorized into different types based on the place where it comes from. Commercial wastes are the type of wastes generated from business places or commercial places or during any trading activity. The business may be related to education, sports, entertainment, medical, health care, devotional, and other commercial shops.  Commercial wastes are not the same as agricultural or domestic wastes because no business purpose is involved in both domestic and agricultural wastes.  So, it is important to separate the commercial wastes from the other wastes, so it may require a different disposal method. The green wastes from commercial places like hotels or restaurants are also categorized as commercial waste.

In general,  the rubbishes generated from the day-to-day activities of industrial and manufacturing units like mining plants, hospitals, wholesalers, retail shops, and other commercial places are considered as different types of commercial wastes. In simple words, the waste generated from the different commercial places is categorized as different commercial wastes.

commercial wastes

What are the different types of Commercial Wastes? 

The commercial wastes are classified as

  1. Biodegradable waste
  2. Chemical waste
  3. Electronic waste
  4. Demolition waste and
  5. Construction wastes

1. Commercial Biodegradable waste 

Biodegradable wastes are found in solid wastes like paper waste, food waste,  green wastes from commercial properties. The food wastes and green wastes from commercial places are also considered as commercial wastes. In Biodegradable wastes, the organic materials are split into carbon-di-oxide, methane, or water. Biodegradable wastes are used in the composting process to emit heat, fuel, or gas.

Examples of Commercial Biodegradable wastes:

Food wastes, paper wastes, sewage, hospital wastes, garden wastes from commercial places are some of the examples of commercial Biodegradable wastes. The biodegradable wastes are used as fertilizer, biogas, and compost.

2. Commercial Chemical waste

Commercial Chemical wastes are the wastes having harmful chemicals and toxins from commercial places like hospitals, manufacturing industries, and other commercial places. These wastes are considered hazardous waste. These chemical wastes need more attention and perfection in disposing of, otherwise, the chemical will harm the surroundings and environment.

Commercial chemical wastes

Examples of Commercial Chemical wastes:

chemicals used for research used batteries, medicines, solvents, products contains mercury, oil products and wastage from the cosmetic industries are examples of chemical wastes.

3. Commercial Construction waste

Mostly all construction wastes are considered commercial wastes. The waste generated from the construction process needs more care in waste clearance and disposing. Many waste management has a separate unit to clear the construction wastes.

Different types of commercial wastes

Examples of Commercial Construction wastes:

woods, metals, concrete, cement, glass materials, insulation, asbestos materials tiles, bricks, and ceramics are the common construction materials. The excess of construction materials is an example of commercial construction wastes.

Like we mentioned earlier, commercial wastes are not the same as domestic wastes, so they can be handled only by professional waste removal services. sometimes the commercial wastes are considered hazardous wastes due to the presence of chemicals from various commercial places.

Energy Recovery From Various Wastes

Energy recovery from the wastes is the process of generating energy from the various waste materials which are ready for the disposal unit.  The energy is either electricity, heat, or fuel that can be used in homes or commercial places.

In other terms, Energy Recovery is the process of converting non-recyclable waste materials into useful energy through processor combustion, gasification, landfill gas recovery, anaerobic digestion, and pyrolization. This is also known as waste- energy cycle.

Energy recovery is the key part of the waste management process, helps to convert solid wastes and hazardous wastes into useful energy. This process involves various waste management strategies and it helps to minimize the wastes in the disposal units.  The burning or combustion process is the one among the effective process in waste -energy cycle, here not only the volume of wastes reduced but also the wastes are recovered as energy after the combustion process. The energy recovery process has lots of benefits like it limits carbon emission by generating renewable energy sources and it also reduces the emission of methane gas from landfills.  This process also helps to prevent the atmosphere from the various pollution, reduces greenhouse gases, and makes the environment healthy and green.

How to recover energy from wastes

What are the advantages of Energy Recovery?

waste recovery process

Top 3 Energy Recovering Process

1.  Combustion

Combustion is the process of burning the waste materials in the enclosed area and treating the disposing of solid and hazardous wastes. The combustion process involves two separate categories one for solid hazardous wastes and another one is for liquid hazardous wastes. The two categories of the combustion process are named as

  • Incinerators – This the combustion process used only to recover the energy.
  • Boilers and Industrial Furnaces – This process is used to convert energy and material recovery.

Landfill Gas recovery

2. Gasification

Gasification is the process of creating energy from the wastes. Here the carbonaceous materials are converted into carbon dioxide and carbon mono oxide and also produce little hydrogen gas in the presence of oxygen at the high temperature. In the process of Gasification, synthesis gas is generated from hazardous wastes and it can be used to produce heat or electricity.

3. Landfill gas recovery

Landfill gas recovery (LPG)  is the process of collecting methane gas from the wastes deposited in landfills. LPG is the product that arrives from the decomposition of organic substances in landfills. The LPG is the combination of an equal amount of methane and carbon dioxide and a small number of organic compounds.
