Waste to Energy Systems

There are many different waste to energy systems and processes that create energy from
waste streams. CP will compliment your process with the most reliable and efficient front end
- Mechanical Biological Treatment: plants are designed to process mixed household,
commercial and industrial waste. The process combines a front-end sorting facility with a
form of biological treatment such as composting or anaerobic digestion.
- Refuse Derived Fuel: is produced by shredding and dehydrating municipal solid waste. Glass
and metals as well as other non-combustible materials are removed by mechanical
separation leaving only the combustible materials such as plastics and biodegradable waste.
RDF is often used in cement kilns and gasifiers.
- Pyrolisys: is the thermo-chemical decomposition of organic materials at high temperatures
without the use of oxygen. It is used mainly to produce charcoal, methanol, gasoline, biofuel
and other chemicals, and to turn waste into safely disposable substances.
- Anaerobic digestion: is a process in which microorganisms break down biodegradable
material without the use of oxygen it is good to use on material with high moisture content.
Anaerobic digestion is used to manage waste and produce energy. The end result, after
many series of digestion treatments, is methane and carbon dioxide.
- Gasification: is a process that converts organic materials into carbon monoxide and
hydrogen, the resultant gas is a source of syngas, renewable energy when it is not derived
from fossil fuels. That organic material reacts at high temperatures with a controlled amount
of oxygen and without the use of combustion. Some types of gasification are plasma arc
waste disposal and fluid bed gasification.
- Biodrying: is the process where biodegradable material is heated rapidly throughout the
initial stages of composting, which removes moisture from the waste and reduces it in size
and weight. It is a fairly quick process that uses minimal electricity and aerobic bacteria often
in mechanical biological treatment facilities. It can be used in the refuse derived fuel process
or applied to mechanical biological treatment plants.
