Concerning the amount of GHG emissions, both processes come up with similar GWP values (845 kg C[O.sub.2]-eq./Mg for power-conducted WtE
plants versus 851kg C[O.sub.2]-eq./Mg for heat-conducted WtE
Of this, 1,200 metric tonnes is usurped by the Ghazipur WTE
plant generating 12 MW of energy, while the Okhla WTE
uses about 1,300 MT of waste producing 1,600 MW of electricity.
The Finland-headquartered firm's new cranes for the WtE
sector include technologies specifically designed for biomass, slag, sludge and waste-handling applications, the company said in a statement.
The extension reflects the successful and mutually beneficial long-term collaboration between the authority and Morristown, New Jersey-based Covanta, the largest WTE
company in the country.
Once the number of minutes was calculated, the annual WTE
resource for that component was deduced by basing it on a 37.5-hour average week for 37 weeks.
He added that from this experience 4 years are required for a WtE
plant to be fully functional depending upon various factors.
The report adds that on the other hand, biological WTE
plant's volume will also be significant as it does not lead to environmental hazardous emissions.
Currently there are some 800 industrial-scale WTE
plants in more than three dozen countries around the world, and likely thousands of smaller systems at individual sites.
facility emissions have been on a steady decline for many years," said Marco J.
Ever increasing prices of fossil fuels have been fuelling WTE
technology, which has over time become an important option for alternate power generation the world over.
* The introduction of sustainable recovery initiatives in the region is beginning to take shape: Abu Dhabi introduced new tariffs for businesses, charging Dh225 ($61.2) per tonne of waste, prompting companies to reduce waste generation and consider recycling; Dubai is developing plans to build a 6,500 tonnes per day WtE
plant to produce 150-megawatts of electricity.
) or energy-from-waste (EfW) is the process of creating energy in the form of electricity or heat from the incineration of waste source.
