Solid refuse treatment

Waste-to-energy systems involve mainly thermochemical processes where the input feedstock consists of wasteous organic material (like municipal solid waste, medical waste, sewage sludge etc.)

Depending on each project specifications and demands, the adequate waste-to-energy system may vary from:

  • Small scale gasification, in case there is a demand for on-site waste treatment without overturning the primary target of energy production
  • Large scale centralized gasification, when energy production is of most interest plus the benefits from scale of economics
  • Plasma gasification to maximize the produced amount of energy in expense of additional costs
  • Synthetic fuels production (Fischer Tropsch process) offers distinctive benefits when fuel production is of major concern

The key factor which supports waste-to-energy solutions is the potential to deal simultaneously with the intensified problem of energy security, coupled with decreasing landfill area and the stricter restrictions for waste disposal

  • Innovative processes with almost zero CO2 emissions
  • Flexible output profile: power, heat (steam or hot water), synthetic fuels
  • The electricity generated utilizing waste offsets electricity generated from fossil fuels
  • Reduction of the amount of organic material going to landfills, which in turn reduces landfill methane emissions

During the last decade ITA Group, through its multiple collaborations, has achieved a remarkable technical know-how, in various innovative waste-to-energy technologies from small scale decentralized gasification installations, to larger waste gasification plants, plasma gasification and waste (MSW or sewage sludge) conversion to synthetic fuels via the Fischer-Tropsch thermochemical process.
