Waste management

Waste-to-energy (WtE) is the process of creating energy in the form of electricity or heat from the incineration of waste source. WtE is a form of energy recovery. Most WtE processes produce electricity directly through combustion, or produce a combustible fuel commodity, such as methane, methanol, ethanol or synthetic fuels.

Project Description for Central Eastern Europe

The modern world is a world driven by technology, information and knowledge/know-how. The current global warming has occupied a prime place in the research world. The trend is for the development of renewable energy to replace the dominant fossil-fuel energy source for both domestic and industrial use. The United Nations System is currently engaged in giving financial assistance through its Carbon Credit Fund to developing countries pursuing clean energy projects. However, it is regrettable that at present, of the more than 1,000 integrated waste management projects approved for assistance worldwide by the UN System, none are located in Romania. The proposed Waste-to-Energy plants will provide a venue for Romania to advance significantly in meeting the MDGs in the provision of energy, food and housing for her citizens.

For the future

Recycling Energy Waste-to-Energy plants in Romania

The project proposes to bring the Recycling Energy Waste-to-Energy plants Romania. These plants convert waste (household waste, hospital waste, industrial waste, commercial waste, discarded tires, dried sewage, etc.) into electricity with zero toxins and carbon emissions into the air. The plants will thus dispose of a sizeable portion of wastes in our cities while producing electricity.

The Recycling Energy Waste-to-Energy technology combusts 100 percent of the combustible components in the waste that it processes. This complete combustion process reduces the volume of waste by 92-95 percent. The by-products from the processing can be used as replacement for gravels in the construction industry and sold as fly ash in the concrete industry. The project has been shown to be commercially viable and will yield substantial profit that can be used by Government for funding other developmental projects.
