Recovering Energy from Waste

The most typical Waste to Energy implementation is incineration, which is the combustion of organic material such as waste with energy recovery. All new waste-to-energy plants in Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development countries must fulfil stringent emission regulations, including nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur dioxide (SO2), heavy metals, and dioxins. As a result, modern incineration plants differ significantly from older models, some of which do not recover energy or materials. Depending on the content of the trash and the degree of recovery of commodities such as metals from the ash for recycling, modern incinerators reduce the volume of the original garbage by 95-96 percentage.
