Waste-to-energy (WtE) or energy-from-waste (EfW) is an advanced waste disposal process that generates electricity from non-hazardous waste. Why is WtE important? Dumping tons of waste in landfills compounds the climate crisis and jeopardizes the safety of people, animals, and natural resources.
The growing demand for waste management and increasing focus on non-fossil fuel sources of energy are primarily driving the rise of the global WtE market.
Waste is generated on a regular basis from agricultural facilities, homes, businesses, industries, and so on. A waste-to-energy plant (or WtE facility) helps in turning waste into energy (heat or electricity). Waste-to-energy technology (WtE technology) has evolved to include breakthrough processes in environmentally friendly organic waste disposal and solid waste management.
