Waste to energy (WtE) technology is one of the best techno-economically feasible technologies for treatment of MSW. This technology involves incinerating MSW in a controlled manner and the thermal energy thus produced is used to convert water into steam, which is then used to turn the turbines connected to generators that produce electrical : U.

Environmental modelling has enjoyed a long tradition, but there is a defined need to continually address both the power and the limitations of such models, as well as their quantitative assessment. This book showcases modern environmental modelling methods, the basic theory behind them and their incorporation into complex environmental. Environmental Assessment of Municipal Waste Management Scenarios: Part II – Detailed Life Cycle Assessments List of tables Table 1 The baseline distribution of File Size: 4MB.   During the combustion of municipal solid waste (MSW), energy is produced which can be utilized to generate electricity. However, electricity production from incineration has to be evaluated from the point view of the environmental performance. In this study, environmental impacts of electricity production from waste incineration plant in Thailand are compared with Cited by: Sustainability aspects, including consideration of environmental, economic and social impacts are also explored. The book concludes with an analysis of how deploying waste-to-energy systems is dependent on cross-cutting research methods, including geographical information systems and big data.
