Invited Session: Energy Recovery
Food Waste Diversion Effect on WtE Design and Performance
Monday, September 25, 2017
14:00 – 14:30
Food waste diversion changes the overall make-up of the waste stream used for waste to energy projects. This presentation evaluates the effect on fuel preparation, net heat value, energy recovery, emissions and ash characteristics for projects with 0 percent, 50 percent and 100 percent reduction. Comparison tools include proximate and ultimate analysis, mass flow and energy balance.
Following the presentation, participants will be able to:
- Evaluate the effect that food waste diversion has on the design and performance of new fluidized bed waste to energy projects
- Compare projects with 0 percent, 50 percent and 100 percent food waste diversion rates
