Submersible Sewage pumps’ recycling possibilities during the refurbishing or upgrade of wastewater management facilities

Sewage pumps are among the main electromechanical equipment of the sewage and wastewater management facilities around Europe for over 30 years. Their operational life is around 15-20 years and a significant number of these equipments are non-operating. The need for the replacement of these pumps leads to an increased number of them which should be disposed off in the forthcoming years.

Although, the WEEE Directive (2002/96/EC) for “Waste of electrical and electronic equipment” is the main related legislation, the sewage pumps are not included. This work investigates the possibilities for recycling of sewage pumps used in wastewater management facilities after its renovation or upgrade. Evaluation results indicate that there is high potential for materials recovery; thus, this could contribute to the effort for the minimization of their impact to the environment, through the materials recovery and safe handling of non-operating industrial and possibly hazardous waste electrical equipment.

Rückbaubarkeit von Notebooks als Vorstufe eines stofflichen Recyclings und deren Ressourcenpotenzial
© Lehrstuhl für Abfallverwertungstechnik und Abfallwirtschaft der Montanuniversität Leoben (11/2014)
Für die Rückgewinnung versorgungskritischer Rohstoffe aus Elektronikgeräten ist es erforderlich, die Geräte auseinander zu bauen, um die Rohstoffträger (z.B. Leiterplatten, Festplatten, Akkus) einem gezielten Recycling zuzuführen. Am Beispiel von drei Note-books der Baujahre 2004, 2007 und 2010 wurde im ersten Schritt die Rückbaubarkeit geprüft.

Recycling potential for the low voltage high breaking capacity fuse links used by P.P.C. of Greece
© Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (6/2009)
Low voltage (LV) high-breaking-capacity fuse links (NH) are used in LV installations protecting mainly the LV electricity distribution networks and in a significant amount of LV electrical equipment used in industrial, commercial and residential facilities and infrastructures. The WEEE Directive (2002/96/EC) for “Waste of electrical and electronic equipment” is the main related legislation and even though it concerns electrical and electronic equipment, it does not include electric fuses.
