Reject to Power: A Key Method in Rubbish Recycling
Efficient Incineration, Optimal Energy Balance
In the first step of the process, waste materials (e.g. household refuse, refuse from the paper, fibre, and wood processing sectors or sludge from water purification plants) are prepared mechanically. A rotating wheel then throws the materials into the furnace. A multi-zone grate with a separate air intake ensures efficient combustion and an optimal energy balance. Details on the method
The heat from the furnace is used to create steam, the characteristics of which are adapted to suit the relevant requirements for heat or electricity production by means of a steam turbine. The reject-to-power method incinerates waste materials effectively and produces electricity at the same time, resulting in savings on both the waste disposal bill and the electric bill.
