Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

Increasing global consumerism and population has led to an increase in the levels of waste produced. While integrated waste management practices help to divert as much of the mixed general waste back to be recycled or reused as possible, there are limited options available for residual wastes. Energy recovery represents an additional option in support of an improved and sustainable waste management hierarchy. Rather than sending residual wastes direct to landfill, advanced conversion technologies coupled with advanced pollution control systems can be employed to convert these calorific materials into clean energy. These systems can be integrated into buildings, distributed energy networks and even national electricity grids, allowing for residual wastes to play an important role in local energy supply and wider energy security.

The editors and contributors provide an integrated, comprehensive reference on waste to energy (WTE) conversion technology. Introductory chapters review the waste hierarchy and WTE systems options along with the corresponding environmental, regulatory and techno-economic issues facing this technology. This coverage is extended with reviews of the development of WTE systems, from initial processing and pretreatment of wastes onto the range of combustion and advanced conversion and energy recovery technologies, including anaerobic digestion routes that can also utilize landfill gas. The final section reviews the highly developed pollution controls applicable to these systems, as well as routes to optimize overall systems performance and approaches to integrate WTE technology into local power and heat networks.

Sinossi:

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
