Waste to energy conversion technology (Woodhead Publishing Series in Energy)
Waste to energy conversion technology (Woodhead Publishing Series in
Energy) provides 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.
