The energy recovery method of waste treatment does not only help in treating non-reusable and non-recyclable amounts of waste but also in the conversion of valuable energy resource into electricity and heat. Waste-to-energy is the process of generating energy from waste, done by combusting recycled municipal solid waste and industrial waste in grate incinerators or fluidized bed incinerators.
WTE plants and facilities turn pre-processed waste into heat and electricity, which are directed to heating networks and electricity grids. Waste-to-energy combustion technology has its own drawbacks.
One of the major issues of this method is the low efficiency of utilizing the waste fuel as a result of the low heating values caused by the high contents of moisture and oxygen in the waste.
