Seminar on Waste-to-Energy Technologies

The rapid growth of waste materials generated by humanity and the ever-increasing scarcity of landfill space worldwide have resulted in a major environmental problem. Faced with this challenge, municipalities and companies are seeking alternative solutions to the age-old method of landfilling. The only proven alternative for the management of the post-recycling waste, that means the waste with no value in the market or recovery potential, is thermal treatment for the recovery of energy (waste-to-energy or WTE).
