Advanced Conversion: Maximising the Potential for Energy from Waste

• http://www.renewableenergyfocus.com,
 Steel tubes that form the walls of the combustion chambers are heated, transforming water in the tubes to steam that is sent through a turbine to continuously generate electricity.

Despite this relatively simple process and endless supply of feedstocks, EfW is often overlooked when compared with other bioenergy technologies (not to mention the more high profile renewable technologies like wind and solar power). One reason for this is the challenge associated with generating energy from waste as efficiently as possible on the one hand, while doing so in an environmentally sound and socially acceptable way on the other.
