Waste-to-Energy

Converting non-recyclable waste into usable energy, contributing to sustainability & economic viability.

The process of Waste-to-Energy

Process Of Waste-to-Energy

Waste-to-Energy (WTE) is a process that involves the conversion of non-recyclable waste materials into usable forms of energy, such as electricity, heat, or steam. This approach helps address two key challenges: reducing the volume of waste going to landfills and harnessing the energy content of waste that cannot be easily recycled.

Refuse-Derived Fuel (RDF)

Refuse-Derived Fuel (RDF) is a type of solid fuel produced from various types of non-recyclable municipal solid waste (MSW) through mechanical and biological treatment processes. RDF is used as a fuel source in waste-to-energy facilities and industrial boilers to generate heat and electricity.

RDF is derived from mixed waste streams that typically include materials like plastics, paper, cardboard, textiles, rubber, and certain organic materials. The waste is often subjected to processes such as pre-shredding, screening, and ferrous/non-ferrous metal removal to improve fuel quality. Producing high-quality RDF requires effective and innovative technology in order to ensure consistent fuel quality. We have a variety of solutions to improve RDF processing.

Incineration Plant/Mass Burner

Waste to Energy - Incineration Plant/Mass Burner - eFACTOR3

Incineration involves the controlled combustion of waste materials at high temperatures within specially designed incinerators. The primary outcome of incineration is energy generation in the form of electricity and heat. This energy can be used to power local communities and industrial processes.

Incineration plants primarily process municipal solid waste (MSW) and non-hazardous industrial waste. They are designed to handle a wide range of waste materials, including plastics, paper, organic waste, textiles, and more. These plants significantly reduce the volume of waste, typically by 70-90%, which helps alleviate the strain on landfills.

Incineration plants, when operated with modern technologies and stringent emissions controls, can serve as an effective component of a diversified waste management strategy that emphasizes waste reduction, recycling, and energy recovery. They contribute to a more sustainable approach of managing non-recyclable waste materials and reducing their impact on the environment. eFACTOR3 offers a range of technology that can help specifically with bulky waste, ash processing, and metal recovery after burning occurs.
