Waste in this instance defines any combustible, non-hazardous material resulting from the output of household and industrial processes. This represents a wide range of feedstocks, from construction waste to biosolids from sewage. The compounds and substances present in MSW cover a large proportion of the periodic table; and different technologies may be more or less appropriate for efficient conversion. DP offers several types of combustion and gasification technology in order to provide the best solution.
The variety in municipal solid waste (MSW) composition and differences in thermal degradation behaviour of MSW components makes the modelling, design and operation of thermal conversion systems a task that requires expertise and experience. The formation and composition of the fly ash and emissions are also a direct result of the input feedstock and must be properly understood to determine the correct process for conversion.
