Book Description :

Increasing global consumerism and population has led to an increase in the levels of waste produced. Waste to energy (WTE) conversion technologies can be employed to convert residual wastes into clean energy, rather than sending these wastes directly to landfill. Waste to energy conversion technology explores the systems, technology and impacts of waste to energy conversion. Part one provides an introduction to WTE conversion and reviews the waste hierarchy and WTE systems options along with the corresponding environmental, regulatory and techno-economic issues facing this technology. Part two goes on to explore further specific aspects of WTE systems, engineering and technology and includes chapters on municipal solid waste (MSW) combustion plants and WTE systems for district heating. Finally, part three highlights pollution control systems for waste to energy technologies. Waste to energy conversion technology is a standard reference book for plant managers, building engineers and consultants requiring an understanding of WTE technologies, and researchers, scientists and academics interested in the field. Reviews the waste hierarchy and waste to energy systems options along with the environmental and social impact of WTE conversion plants Explores the engineering and technology behind WTE systems including considerations of municipal solid waste (MSW) its treatment, combustion and gasification Considers pollution control systems for WTE technologies including the transformation of wast combustion facilities from major polluters to pollution sinks

Book Description :

ABSTRACT: This paper presents the conversion of waste-to-energy (WtE) in Thailand. The amount of municipal solid waste (MSW) generated in Thailand in 2013 was 26.77 million tons which requires an enormous budget allocation for municipal solid waste management (MSWM). However, the budget is insufficient to provide adequate MSWM services. In order to increase the efficiency, sustainable and environmentally in MSWM, WtE technologies are provided as a solution toward a successful policy. Thailand considers WtE, incineration, refuse derived fuel (RDF), anaerobic digestion, pyrolysis and gasification, and landfill gas recovery to be renewable technologies. These technologies not only reduced the quantity but also improved the quality of waste to meet the required pollution control standards, besides generating a substantial quantity of energy.

Book Description :

Solid waste management is currently a major issue worldwide with numerous areas reaching critical levels. Many developing countries and countries in transition still miss basic waste management infrastructure and awareness. It is here that many of the solid waste management problems and challenges are currently being faced. As such, waste-to-energy (WTE) consists of a proven and continuously developing spectrum and range of technologies in a number of (mostly) developed countries. However, it’s integration in developing countries and systems in transition is often faced with scepticism and a complex set of barriers which are quite unique and differ greatly from those where WTE has been validated and applied over the years. Waste-to-Energy: Opportunities and Challenges for Developing and Transition Economies will address this issue both theoretically and using concrete examples, including: · contributions from numerous scholars and practitioners in the field, · useful lessons and rules of thumb, · both successful and failed cases, and · real-life examples and developments. Waste-to-Energy approaches this dynamic aspect of environmental engineering and management in a methodical and detailed manner making it an important resource for SWM planners and facility operators as well as undergraduate and post graduate students and researchers.

Book Description :

One of the least recognized alternative sources of energy, municipal solid waste, is a promising, virtually inexhaustible domestic energy source. Technologies to convert this waste to energy are available, and the recovery of energy through the combustion on municipal solid waste is a well-established technique for conserving energy in Western Europe. Federal efforts to convert waste to energy are fragmented, uncoordinated, misguided, uncertain in priorities, and lacking in overall strategy.

Book Description :

Waste-to-energy plants generate energy and they manage waste, notably municipal solid waste (MSW). Which way is best is still a matter of serious scientific research, both in a technological and in an economic-commercial sense, taking the environmental impact into account. The latter is a particular concern of the transition to a (more) circular economy, the major economic perspective launched by the European Union. The role of waste-to-energy processes in such a transition is still marred by legal problems and, even in 2017, considered a controversial subject. In this multi-disciplinary book, the state of waste-to-energy in the modern world is analyzed from the point of view of several disciplines: legal, socio- economic, commercial, and technological.

This book provides an overview of state-of-the-art technologies for energy conversion from waste, as well as a much-needed guide to new and advanced strategies to increase Waste-to-Energy (WTE) plant efficiency. Beginning with an overview of municipal solid waste production and disposal, basic concepts related to Waste-To-Energy conversion processes are described, highlighting the most relevant aspects impacting the thermodynamic efficiency of WTE power plants. The pervasive influences of main steam cycle parameters and plant configurations on WTE efficiency are detailed and quantified. Advanced hybrid technology applications, particularly the Hybrid Combined Cycle concept, are examined in detail, including an illuminating compare-and-contrast study of two basic types of hybrid dual-fuel combined cycle arrangements: steam/water side integrated HCC and windbox repowering.

Graphical abstract: Highlights: Energy demand increases by decreasing non-renewable source of energy exponentially. Energy generation from waste solve global challenges. Generation hydrogen from waste is the new clean technology. Abstract : Economic development and related increase in global energy demand has created pressure on the supply of energy resources. To promote sustainable development a safe and renewable energy is required. For this, municipal solid waste (MSW) contributes significantly in creating a safe environment and renewable energy. Currently in developing countries, the scarcities of energy and ordinary ways of MSW disposal have generated a number of environmental and socioeconomic problems. This situation invites researchers to develop different waste to energy (WtE) conversion alternatives under several scenarios. A related review show that energy conversion technologies such as incineration, pyrolysis, gasification, anaerobic digestion, ethanol fermentation, landfill and future trends like microbial fuel cell (MFC) and microbial electrolysis cell (MEC) are the main ways. Among those WtE technologies are ecologically green that convert MSW into electricity, hydrogen gas and other chemical feedstocks. The review suggests that MFC and MEC technologies forecast future WtE for fabrication of biohydrogen from MSW.
