Waste-To- Energy

What is Waste to Energy- ?

Waste to Energy takes the concept of waste management one stage further, and considers the use of biomass (food waste, grass and similar organics, and sewage sludge) as a precursor to the production of energy, either as compost, or as the fuel for the generation of electricity.

The waste material (sludge) from the treatment of sewage can be anaerobically digested to produce methane gas (amongst others), which can be used to supply energy to the process and be used to produce electricity. The digested sludge can be further treated by drying, for use as a fertilizer, or be a fuel source for power generation. The resultant ash is inert, and may be sent to landfill, or be used as a cement replacement in the making of concrete. Waste materials that cannot economically be recycled can also be used as fuel for power generation. Qatar currently incinerates over 1,000 tons per day of waste to produce megawatts of electricity.
