With this document, STRABAG Energy Technologies provides a brief overview on its application in the areas of waste-to-energy and flue gas treatment solutions.
What is waste-to-energy?
Waste-to-Energy (WTE) is the sum of processes that produce electric energy from controlled waste incineration. Nowadays it has also become a safe and favourable form of energy recovery from the environmental point of view.
As such, it is currently regarded as an essential element in the mechanism of integrated waste management, in all industrialised countries. In Italy too, after some ten years of stasis, this energy recovery method is reporting a strong revival.
The new trend is supported by the safety granted by modern WTE technologies in terms of environmental impact, and so also in terms of effects on the population living in the surroundings.
