#WTEFUTURE - Showcasing The Future of Waste-To-Energy

A selection of success stories from the ESWET members which present the next innovations and future trends in the Waste-To-Energy sector. 

 

1) Hong Kong’s first Integrated Waste Management Facility

The Waste-to-Energy island in Hong Kong will prevent landfilling of 1,2 million tonnes of non-recyclable waste, which results in carbon emissions savings of 440.000 tonnes per year. The article is the first of a series provided by ESWET members to support ESWET Vision 2050 for the future of Waste-to-Energy.   

 

2) New concepts for Waste-To-Energy plants of the future: a German focus

The energy transformation in Germany is currently bringing about an upheaval in energy policy. In this regard, a purely heat-generating Waste-to-Energy plant can provide a reliable heat source and be able to solve two environmental problems at once.            

 

3) The Integrated Waste-to-Water Process

The Integrated Waste-to-Water Process uses municipal solid waste to fuel seawater desalination plants. The concept is specially developed for applications in desert areas to secure a sustainable, less fossil fuel depended, potable water supply for local citizens.              

 

4) The Waste-to-Energy Plant of the Future

Waste-to-Energy is in a continuous process of innovation. In the future, it will increasingly recover resources, store energy, produce e-fuels; capture and recover CO2; provide educational and sports activities, and much much more.
