Quick Summary of Waste-to-Energy Processes

A wide variety of waste-to-energy processes are available for realizing the potential of waste as an energy source, ranging from very simple systems for disposing of dry waste to more complex technologies capable of dealing with large amounts of municipal and industrial waste. These methods can be broadly divided into thermal and biological processes. Some […]

Role of Waste-to-Energy in SWM

According to recent estimates, the rapid increase in population coupled with changing lifestyle and consumption patterns is expected to result in an exponential increase in global waste generation of up to 18 billion tonnes by year 2020. Ironically, most of the wastes are disposed of in open fields, along highways or burnt wantonly. Waste generation […]

Waste-to-Energy Industry Trends

The quantity of waste produced all over the world amounted to more than 1.3 billion tonnes in 2012, with estimates of up to 2.2 billion tonnes by 2025. The rapid increase in population coupled with changing lifestyle and consumption patterns is expected to result in an exponential increase in solid waste generation. Ironically, most of […]
