Book Description :

As the availability of fossils fuels becomes more limited, the negative impact of their consumption becomes an increasingly relevant factor in our choices with regards to primary energy sources. The exponentially increasing demand for energy is reflected in the mass generation of by-products and waste flows which characterize current society’s development and use of fossil sources. The potential for recoverable material and energy in these ever-increasing refuse flows is huge, even after the separation of hazardous constituent elements, allowing safe and sustainable further exploitation of an otherwise 'wasted' resource. Fuel Cells in the Waste-to-Energy Chain explores the concept of waste-to-energy through a 5 step process which reflects the stages during the transformation of refuse flows to a valuable commodity such as clean energy. By providing selected, integrated alternatives to the current centralized, wasteful, fossil-fuel based infrastructure, Fuel Cells in the Waste-to-Energy Chain explores how the concept of waste-to-energy can be constructed and developed into a realistic solution. The entire spectrum of current and future energy problems is illuminated through the explanation of the operational, integration and marketing implications of high efficiency technological solutions using the real context of developed regions such as Europe. Up-to-date reviews are provided on the status of technology and demonstration, implementation and marketing perspectives. The detailed technological information and insight gathered from over twenty years of experience in the field makes Fuel Cells in the Waste-to-Energy Chain a valuable resource for all engineers and researchers in the fields of energy supply systems and waste conversion, as well as providing a key reference for discussions by policy makers, marketing experts and industry developers working in energy supply and waste management.

Book Description :

The recovery of energy through the combustion of municipal solid waste is a well-established technique for conserving energy. Combustion units can produce electricity; hot water for domestic use; and steam for district heating, industrial processes, or the drying of sewage sludge. There are fewer than 20 such waste-to-energy systems in the United States. In Western Europe, however, 243 combustion units are currently recovering energy from municipal solid waste. The oldest of these facilities went into service before World War II. Some key facts about Western European countries and their waste-to-energy units are presented. The items discussed include: some common features of the Western European systems; the combustion techniques available; the end uses to which the recovered energy is put; and the economics of the systems. A tabulation of the systems currently operating or under construction in Western Europe is included. (LCL).

Book Description :

China's rapidly emerging economy faces energy shortages and environmental challenges. Cities besieged by waste and brownouts are turning to the modern Waste-to-Energy (WTE) industry for help. The WTE process uses the endless supply of waste to create energy in the form of electric power, heat, liquid fuel and gas, while providing a solution to the dilemma of energy security, pollution and climate change. This book sets forth the standards used by law makers for recognition of WTE as a renewable energy source and the various economic incentives provided. It also explores the diverse interests of governments, WTE enterprises, investors and the public. It analyzes the philosophical and practical approaches of current legislation, as well as technological plausibility and operational feasibility. While the focus is on China's burgeoning electricity market, the German and US markets are presented as comparative benchmarks in an effort to establish universal conclusions and recommendations. This work will prove especially useful to entrepreneurs entering into the explosive Chinese WTE market and as a guide for professionals investing in the Chinese renewable energy sector.

Book Description :

Gasification of Waste Materials: Technologies for Generating Energy, Gas and Chemicals from MSW, Biomass, Non-recycled Plastics, Sludges and Wet Solid Wastes explores the most recent gasification technologies developing worldwide to convert waste solids to energy and synthesis gas and chemical products. The authors examine the thermodynamic aspects, accepted reaction mechanisms and kinetic constraints of using municipal solid waste (MSW), biomass, non-recycled plastics (NRP), sludges and wet solid wastes as feedstock. They identify the distinctions between pyrolysis, gasification, plasma, hydrothermal gasification, and supercritical systems. A comprehensive summary of laboratory and demonstration activities is presented, as well as field scale systems that have been in operation using solid waste streams as input, highlighting their areas of disconnect and alignment. The book also provides a summary of information on emissions from the stack, comparing them with other thermal conversion systems using similar feedstock. It then goes on to assess the areas that must be improved to ensure gasification systems become as successful as combustion systems operating on waste streams, ranging from feedstock processing to gasifier output gas clean-up, downstream system requirements and corrosion. The economics and future projections for waste gasification systems are also discussed. For its consolidation of the current technical knowledge, this text is recommended for engineering researchers, graduate students, industry professionals, municipal engineers and decision makers when planning, designing and deploying waste to energy projects, especially those using MSW as feedstock. Provides field demonstrations of large scale systems, their results and the challenges that need to be overcome when developing commercial applications and possible solutions Presents the most recent technologies in lab and demonstration scale Examines the critical development needs and real life challenges for the deployment of waste to energy technologies Provides information on the economics and sustainability of these technologies, as well as their future perspectives
