2. Incineration :
Newer technology entrants delivering residual MSW treatment can be split into three main categories:
Mechanical and Biological Treatment (MBT)
Mechanical Heat Treatment (MHT)
Advanced Thermal Treatment (ATT) – principally gasification and pyrolysis
In addition to these, incineration offers a further option for the treatment of residual MSW and is an already proven and bankable technology in the UK
Energy recovered from waste can be used in the following ways:
3. 1 Generation of Power (electricity),from 10mw to 60MW.
3. 2 Generation of Heat,
3. 3 Generation of Heat and Power
3. 4 Incineration providesthe best way to eliminate methane gas emissions fromwaste management processes.
3. 5 Furthermore, energyfrom waste projects provides a substitute for fossil fuel combustion.
