Incineration involves the controlled combustion of waste materials at high temperatures within specially designed incinerators. The primary outcome of incineration is energy generation in the form of electricity and heat. This energy can be used to power local communities and industrial processes.
Incineration plants primarily process municipal solid waste (MSW) and non-hazardous industrial waste. They are designed to handle a wide range of waste materials, including plastics, paper, organic waste, textiles, and more. These plants significantly reduce the volume of waste, typically by 70-90%, which helps alleviate the strain on landfills.
Incineration plants, when operated with modern technologies and stringent emissions controls, can serve as an effective component of a diversified waste management strategy that emphasizes waste reduction, recycling, and energy recovery. They contribute to a more sustainable approach of managing non-recyclable waste materials and reducing their impact on the environment. eFACTOR3 offers a range of technology that can help specifically with bulky waste, ash processing, and metal recovery after burning occurs.
Types of Waste/Materials: MSW, C&I, and biomass
