This paper describes a fourth generation WTE facility, the Waste-Fired Power Plant (WFPP®) owned and operated by the City of Amsterdam. This plant is designed with the Best Available Technologies (BAT) to achieve the lowest possible emissions to air, water and soil, thereby creating the lowest possible nuisance levels to neighboring residents, offices and industries. The plant is also designed to maximize electricity production, and to recycle and recover the maximum amount of materials which include ferrous and non-ferrous metals, sand and granulate to produce building products and gypsum and salt from fluegas. In addition the paper describes the design features applied to achieve the world’s best energy efficiency and includes a discussion on the life cycle economic advantages of BAT applications and the positive effect of BAT on Green House Gas emissions.
