TK Verlag Karl Thomé-Kozmiensky Optimization of Plant Operation by Means of Technical ServiceMichael Mück
The who sticks his head in the sand today, has grit in his teeth tomorrow. There is no reason
to designate. The large number of successful realized project shows that a trustful partnership between plant operator and owner and right skilled partners is the right foundation for the implementation of optimization and development projects. The success speaks for itself.
Martin GmbH für Umwelt- und Energietechnik Waste-to-Energy Plant Pozzilli (ENERGONUT), Italy
The ENERGONUT plant near Naples was originally erected in 1997 for the combustion of biomass. In 2005, the customer decided to modify the plant to combust so-called substitute fuels (RDF/CDR) and to upgrade it to state-of-the-art technology, particularly with regard to flue gas cleaning and utilization of energy.

Waste-to-Resources 2017 Ways for increased material recycling of material flows from MBTMatthias Kühle-Weidemeier
By implementing modern thermal and non-thermal waste treatment technologies, waste management hast made a big leap forward. In the last two decades, Central Europe has been the motor of the development. The first decade of this century has been a period of development and installation of new processes in numerous locations. This was followed by nearly a decade of minor progress. This article will analyse the current situation and show how higher recycling rates even from mixed and residual waste can be achieved.

EARTH ENGINEERING CENTER Columbia University Application of Thermal Spray Techniques for Combatting High Temperature Corrosion of WTE Superheater TubesDianyi Yan
Combustion with energy recovery of post-recycling municipal solid waste (MSW), also called waste to energy (WTE), is the only proven alternative to landfilling. Some of the WTE advantages over landfilling are that it avoids landfilling and methane
emissions to atmosphere and reduces the volume of MSW by 90%. One of the main
operational problems in the WTE industry is the corrosion on the superheater tubes,
which is related to the relatively high concentration of chlorine (0.47-0.72 wt%) in the flue gas and the formation of alkaline salts and sulfates.
