White Paper-Forgotten Waste
Our World is drowning in waste and the focus on this dilemma tends to be directed at waste minimization, recycling and repurpos-ing of resources. The focus is primarily plastics from household and industrial waste, all manmade. But what about the massive “forgotten” waste stream that is mostly of natural origin, wood and vegetative waste? This is the forgotten waste and a serious problem, as it is piling up by the day and it directly affects our environment, likely more so than manmade waste because of its sheer volume.
Controlling Emissions from the Burning of Vegetative Debris
Finding ways to reduce the emissions caused by burning biomass waste in open piles or by chipping and grinding it for trucking and depositing it landfills is of considerable importance in protecting the environment during disaster recovery operations. Air curtain FireBoxes, sometimes called air curtain destructors, have demonstrated proven effectiveness in controlling the amount of particulate matter or smoke that is released and they have been one of the tools of choice that DHS/FEMA included in the lineup of machinery required for prepositioned disaster recovery contracts and cleanup endeavors in general for many years.

U.S. Government Projects To Prevent Forest Fires
Preventing forest fires and wildfires is one of the most important goals for federal and state forestry services across the United States. Part of this process involves the removal of underbrush, fallen trees and other woody biomass from at-risk areas and the disposal of these materials in a safe and efficient way. At Air Burners, we partner with many state and federal agencies to provide the most advanced systems for managing vegetation waste and to promote greater safety for families and businesses who may be in the path of uncontrolled fires in the future.
The Right Solution for Preventing Bushfires in Australia
Bushfires are an ongoing threat in many parts of Australia. Finding the most practical and positive steps to take to combat these wildfires is critical to the safety of people and animals in these areas. An estimated 45,000 to 60,000 bushfires occur in Australia each year. Many of these events are caused by carelessness or deliberate action on the part of visitors to the grasslands or hilly areas of Australia. Taking steps to control the spread of these fires is essential to promote the safest conditions for visitors to and residents of Australia.
