Incinerators use a large amount of air to burn solid waste and produces polluntants that can only be treated after combustion. 480 more words
Here’s a good article on waste to energy with an accompanying video that was created by my colleague at Renewable Energy World, Jennifer Runyon. Quite appropriately, Jennifer emphasizes that this project, which happens to feature methane digestion as a technology to transform some of the chemical energy in municipal solid waste (MSW) to electricity, effectively “kills two birds with one stone,” generating a bit of power in an area that needs it desperately, while disposing of a huge amount of MSW, which is an enormous problem in Lagos, Nigeria, a city of 20 million people. 37 more words
Gasification route is somewhat more recent and less known. Combustion route is much better known for a long time technically and commercially.
Gasification process converts solid fuel into a gaseous fuel through a process of high temperature oxidation-reduction reactions.
