Energy from waste (EfW) applies combustion engineering principles to reduce and sanitise waste - after recycling and composting processes have occurred - to recover energy. Covering both 'as received' waste (able to cope with raw, processed or sorted types of solid waste) and fluidised-bed combustion processes. This document also looks at the energy recovery options - including refuse-derived fuel (RDF), pyrolysis and gasification. Deals with operational requirements and strategies, UK policy, European context, legislation, planning, residue management, CHP/district heating issues.
