The book Book Edition: 1. Waste-to-energy plants make steam and electricity. MSW is usually burned at special waste-to-energy plants that use the heat from the fire to make steam for generating electricity or to heat buildings. In68 U.S. power plants generated about 14 billion kilowatthours of electricity from burning million tons of combustible MSW.

Book Description Increasing global consumerism and population has led to an increase in the levels of waste produced. Waste to energy (WTE) conversion technologies can be employed to convert residual wastes into clean energy, rather than sending these wastes directly to landfill.

I read "Municipal Solid Waste to Energy Conversion Processes" by Gary Young. The book is a practical review of several processes for disposal of municipal solid waste by pyrolysis, with electric power and aggregate as by-products.

These are then financially compared to other sources of renewable electric power/5(3). Gasification of municipal solid waste (MSW) is an attractive alternative fuel production process for the treatment of solid waste as it has several potential benefits over traditional combustion of MSW.

Syngas produced from the gasification of MSW can be utilized as a gas fuel being combusted in a conventional burner or in a gas engine to utilize the heat or produce by: 2.

Basic Techniques of Energy Recovery from Waste. Energy can be recovered from the organic fraction of waste (biodegradable as well as non-biodegradable) through thermal, thermo-chemical and biochemical methods.

A brief description of the commonly applied technologies for energy generation from waste is as follows. Anaerobic Digestion/Biomethanation. The course deals with the production of energy from different types of wastes through thermal, biological and chemical routes. It is intended to help the young scientific professionals to keep their knowledge upgraded with the current thoughts and newer technology options along with their advances in the field of the utilization of different types of wastes for energy production.

One way to generate electricity is to burn solid waste, like the material found in landfills. Instead of a traditional landfill, a community might have a waste-to-energy facility that incinerates garbage, transforming chemical energy to thermal energy.
