Promising New Waste to Energy Technologies

Shouldn’t come as much of a surprise here. A company that specializes in dumpster bin rental for waste disposal in Trenton and Colborne, Ontario taking an interest in technological advances in waste disposal. Such is the case here at Load n’ Lift. While that trash-eating river man in Baltimore we highlighted a month or so ago is plenty interesting, there’s no better example of waste management for productive purposes than WHP (waste heat to power) technology. That’s part of what we’re going to talk about here.

Sound good? Right then, let’s get into it.

Waste to energy technology can be described as a process of using organic waste material to produce heat or electricity. This technology gets the hype it does because it converts solid waste substances like paper and plastic into energy, cost-effectively and sustainably. This is good stuff, because improper waste removal negatively impacts the environment in a big way and has problems with global reaches that extend beyond our backyards.

Thermal-Based Waste-to-Energy Technology

Development in gasification and incineration technologies has made it possible to operate large-scale thermal combustion facilities while minimizing polluting emissions. The straightforward process makes the technology highly appropriate for producing energy and there are now over 100 facilities in the US and many more in Asia and Europe.

Among these promising developments are direct combustion, pyrolysis, plasma arc gasification, and conventional gasification.

High Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)

Plenty of environmental pollution stems from the growing population and commercial activities in urban areas. This means high municipal solid waste (MSW) providing what’s needed for the waste-to-energy market. These days thermal-based conversion of waste to energy will contribute to growing economies, particularly in Asia Pacific region where there are more ecological protection concerns.

Increased economic development, construction, and industrialization also contribute favourably to this. 

Biological Technologies

Biological technologies convert waste to energy in a way that’s more ecologically friendly compared to thermal based ones. As you’d expect, these technologies get high marks from environmental experts, and the segment is likely to penetrate the market.

Hydrothermal Carbonization Waste-To-Energy Technology

Geothermal conversion of liquid waste has great potential as a waste-to-energy technology. What this involves is the transformation of wet biomass feedstock through heat. Acid is then added in a highly-pressurized environment to be the catalyst speeding up the process and stimulating the generation of hydro-char. What’s really exciting with this one is the properties of hydro-char are identical to that of fossil fuels, and this technology produces the same amount of energy. This technology is not dependent on any kind of energy input either

The furthest thing from disposal bin rentals in Trenton and Colborne? You bet, but this has real potential when it comes to helping humanity reducing greenhouse gas emissions and reigning in climate change.

Dendro Liquid Energy (DLE)

DLE is all about producing electricity from waste, and the zero-emission discharge it offers gives a lot of potential for use a cleaner electricity generation source. Germany has been the primary pioneer and ground breaker for DLE technology, and it really is something that the entire world should borrow from them if it continues to be a prominent source of cleaner energy for use with densely populated urban areas.

DLE is 4 times more efficient in terms of electricity generation, and has the additional benefits of no emission discharge and effluence problems at plant sites.

A lot to look forward and think positively about with technology based on different waste disposal approaches. For waste disposal in Colborne and Trenton, Ontario make sure you call Load n’ Lift first and get your disposal bin rentals delivered and picked up along with responsible disposal that is always in adherence with Provincial guidelines and best practices for environmental preservation and making sure everything ends up where it should.

And Happy New Year to all of your from all of us! Hope 2021 is a good year for you.
