provides safe and efficient strip out, demolition and asbestos removal services with focus on environmentally safe disposal of the hazardous material.
When opting for a provider, do take a look at how the company deals with waste at a higher level. Some steps followed for efficient and environmental friendly waste removal are mentioned below:
Landfills are the most common way of disposing waste. Reducing solid waste is reducing the amount of trash that goes to landfills. However, due to slow decomposition rate which takes thousands of years, several acres of land has already been virtually rendered useless. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle are most common methods to reduce landfill waste.
Incineration is the second largest waste disposal method in most countries. Incineration is an alternate to burning as burning releases a number of harmful gases and pollutants in the atmosphere. Incinerators successfully direct the waste to generate electricity.
Pyrolysis is used for decomposition of organic material in the presence of superheated water or steam.
Gasification is used to treat solid waste. It provides a more efficient, cleaner conversion of waste into power and can generate a wider range of useful products, including heat, hydrogen, chemicals and fuels.
Anaerobic digestion decomposes waste in an enclosed chamber. This is different from a landfill where decomposition takes place in the open and gaseous by-products like methane are released in the environment. Anaerobic sewage plants produce significant quantities of methane, which can be burnt to generate electricity. Common waste decomposed in anaerobic plants is sewage sludge and agricultural waste.
Some ways where we can contribute directly is by composting within our homes. Organic waste breaks down over a few weeks into a mulch which can be used as a soil fertiliser.
You can start right in your own home, and see how green your trash can get. Start by getting a good grasp on what you currently throw out, and more importantly, what you can save from the trashcan.
