The present invention concerns a method and a facility for the continuous vitrification of fibrous materials, in particular asbestos and/or asbestos materials. According to the invention, this method comprises the following steps: - preparing a glass melt (20) at a temperature of 1300 to 1600C; - introducing, into said glass melt, said fibrous materials and, optionally, melt additives chosen such that said melt has, after the addition of said fibrous materials and melt additives, the following composition: - Si0 2: between 30 and 55 %; - FeO : between 25 and 45 %; - alkaline and alkaline earth oxides: between 15 and 25 %; - injecting, under pressure, an oxidiser and a fuel into said melt by means of at least one nozzle (5), one end of which is submerged in said melt; said oxidiser being introduced in a molar quantity greater than or equal to the molar quantity of fuel necessary in order to keep the temperature of the melt between 1300 and 1600C; and - lowering the temperature of at least a portion of the glass melt in order to make it solid. Application: treatment of fibrous waste, in particular waste asbestos material

A lighting assembly includes a housing assembly, a first light source located within the housing assembly, and a second light source located within the housing assembly. A first cover is positioned relative to the first light source so that the first light source is able to illuminate the first cover. A second cover is positioned relative to the second light source so that the second light source is able to illuminate the second cover. A light barrier is disposed between the first and second covers. The light barrier is configured to prevent interference between the first light source and the second light source.

An illuminated display board includes a frame, a light-transmissive panel, and a light source. The light source is positioned within the frame, and adjacent the light-transmissive panel. The light source is oriented at an angle of between about 25 degrees and about 50 degrees with respect to the light-transmissive panel.

A water filtering system having its components contained within a single housing. The filter system uses a first filter pair of filters which can be first manually isolated from the water flow; and a second pair of filters which can also be manually isolated from the water flow. The two pairs of filters operate in parallel, thereby allowing one pair to be isolated for cleaning/repair without having to curtail operation since the other pair of filters remain operational.

A ground electrode includes a base plate having an upper and a lower side. The ground electrode includes a plurality of tubes each having a first and a second end. The first ends of the tubes are connected to the lower side of the base plate. The tubes are tilted so that the second ends converge in the circular base of a cone. A magnetic coupler is attached to the upper side of the base plate. The magnetic coupler includes a body plate electrically connected to the base plate. Two arm plates and a head plate are connected to the body plate. A permanent magnet is wrapped around a section of the head plate. The ground electrode includes a plurality of diffusers each circumferentially wrapping a section of a respective tube.

A greywater recycling system. The system is designed using flow control management and minimally-sized holding tanks allowing use of on-site greywater recycling in locations where conventional greywater recycling systems are unsuitable. Where conventional greywater recycling systems produce low-value recycled water suitable for use in irrigation, the system produces high-value recycled water suitable for use in other systems, such as cooling towers with minimal impact on the facility and changes to existing processes. By using higher capacity extraction, reducing the size of storage tanks, and returning permeate to supply the extractor, as needed, the system operates efficiently while with a greywater source producing a non-continuous flow of greywater being modular and compact.

Described herein is a module for covering a surface with vegetation. The module comprises a drainage board having an upper surface for supporting a growth medium. The drainage board has a plurality of moisture receptacles extending downwardly from the upper surface for collecting moisture. The module also comprises a plurality of sidewalls having a multiplicity of apertures therethrough. Each sidewall is coupled to the drainage board and extends upwardly therefrom. The sidewalls cooperate with each other so as to provide a perimeter for surrounding the growth medium. The module may also include other features. For example, the sidewalls may be pivotally coupled to the drainage board (e.g. along a living hinge), the module may include couplers for securing adjacent modules together, the sidewalls may include a reinforcing rib, the drainage board may include an opening for receiving an irrigation nozzle therein, and there may be edging for covering the sidewalls.
