Waste To Energy articles

Waste-to-energy - An umbrella term used to cover a range of different technologies that generate electricity and heat from various waste streams, waste-to-energy plants are proving increasingly popular as a means of both cutting emissions and reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill. Technologies include both incinerators that burn waste materials and have been consistently opposed by green groups, cleaner gasification plants that use advanced technologies to convert waste material to synthetic gases, and anaerobic digestion plants that convert organic waste into fertiliser and biogas, which can then be burnt to generate electricity and heat.
