Abstract This paper reports the preparation of newly synthesized bio-epoxy monomers, suitable for replacing petrochemical-derived epoxy resins. An original green method able to produce epoxy monomers starting from neat carbohydrates, waste flours, and even from the organic fraction of municipal solid waste (OFMSW), was here proposed. Hence, for the first time, the epoxidation of carbohydrates was attained only through the exposition to UV and ozone radiation, without using any organic solvent to...

Abstract In the last decade, door-to-door waste collection methods have been largely applied by several municipalities in Italy, with the main purpose to achieve higher rates of sorted waste. This approach requires waste collectors to handle a high number of small waste containers during their work-shift, especially in urban areas and historic city centres. Workers may experience ergonomic issues during door-to-door waste collection, due to the characteristics of the waste containers, the waste ...

Abstract The waste management processes typically involve numerous technical, climatic, environmental, demographic, socio-economic, and legislative parameters. Such complex nonlinear processes are challenging to model, predict and optimize using conventional methods. Recently, artificial intelligence (AI) techniques have gained momentum in offering alternative computational approaches to solve solid waste management (SWM) problems. AI has been efficient at tackling ill-defined problems, learning...

Abstract Carbon-based bimetallic electrocatalysts were obtained by catalytic pyrolysis of waste plastics with Fe-Ni-based catalysts and were used as efficient oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) catalysts in this study. The prepared iron-nickel alloy nanoparticles encapsulated in oxidized carbon nanotubes (FeNi-OCNTs) are solid products with a unique structure. Moreover, the chemical composition and structural features of FeNi-OCNTs were determined. The iron-nickel alloy nanoparticles were wrapped i...
Abstract A simple and chemical-free recycled carbon-ZnMn2O4 powder (composite) from the spent Zn-carbon batteries is proposed as an effective active material for the supercapacitor. This approach may amplify the economic and environmental benefits of the recycling process. We also synthesized the spherical MnOx nanoparticles by the calcination followed by the chemical treatment. Recycled composite and the MnOx nanoparticles were comprehensively characterized. Symmetrical supercapacitors with the...

Abstract The metal in the waste printed circuit boards (WPCBs) is an excellent secondary metal resource. WPCBs were ground to dissociate, and impurities in the dissociated product were removed by gradient flotation to recover valuable metals in this study. The effects of crushing methods on size composition and dissociation state of the crushed products were studied. Then the gradient flotation experiment was designed to verify the natural floatability of ground materials. Grinding test shows th...

Abstract In this study, a subcritical water-urea (SubCW-urea) process was developed for the treatment of brominated epoxy resin powder (BRP) waste. The SubCW-urea process had two significant advantages: efficient low-temperature debromination and highly selective products recovery. The NH3 and CO2 released from urea in the SubCW medium had a prominent enhancement effect on the decomposition and debromination of BRP waste when the SubCW temperature was below 300 °C. The debromination efficiency o...

Abstract Novel and efficient drying method based on electromagnetic induction plate (EMI-P) heating was used to treat sewage sludge (SS). This work focused on the effects of EMI-P action on heavy metals (HMs) in dried SS. Surface functional groups, surface chemistry and microstructures of SS treated were investigated and compared to provide insights into the transformation mechanisms of HMs during EMI-P drying process. The results show that the EMI-P-dried SS showed undesirably total concentrati...
