Waste-to-Energy (WtE) or Energy-from-Waste (EfW) 

Waste incinerator plants for municipal and hazardous waste are required to meet very strict environmental standards on flue gas emission control.

Lodge Cottrell has a range of flue gas cleaning systems that are very flexible allowing for combinations of different processes to be employed depending upon the demands of the individual plants.

Recently waste is being converted into energy by anaerobic digestion, gasification and pyrolysis, rather than incineration/direct combustion, and of these process the latter two produce significant flue gases that need to be treated prior to their discharge into the atmosphere – in line with the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED 2013).
