Paper No: NAWTEC15-3201
... In District Heating (DH), a large number of buildings are heated from a central source by conveying steam or hot water through a network of insulated pipes. Waste-to-Energy (WTE) signifies the controlled combustion of municipal solid wastes to generate electrical and thermal energy in a power...

Paper No: NAWTEC11-1693
... Despite the fact that there are over one hundred Waste-to-Energy (WTE) facilities around the country serving tens of millions of people, there are no industrial or government research centers dedicated to solving problems and improving the WTE technology. In recognition of this fact, the Waste...

Paper No: NAWTEC12-2232
... Mixing of the highly non-homogeneous municipal solid wastes (MSW) on the traveling grate of mass-burn combustion chambers assists the combustion process in waste-to-energy (WTE) facilities. A matrix-based Markov chain model was developed to simulate particle flow and mixing as the solid waste...

... In the U.S., about 28.5 million tons of municipal solid waste are combusted annually in waste-to-energy facilities that generate 25–30% of ash by weight of the MSW feed. Since some residues were found to contain high levels of lead and cadmium prior to the 1990s, they were commonly associated...
