Mission

The aim of WtERT is the global promotion of recovering energy and materials from waste. WtERT Germany wants to bring together the experience gained in the country and spread it - even beyond the German borders.

WtERT Germany is committed to the following topics:

Thermal Treatment


Thermal TreatmentThe focus of WtERT Germany is the thermal treatment of waste.
Through waste incineration,

  • waste is recycled in an environmentally friendly way
  • pollutants are destroyed
  • the energy content of waste is recovered
  • recyclable materials are recovered

No other waste management method has similar advantages.

In the future, the incineration of waste must be the standard procedure for residual waste.

Biological Treatment


Biological TreatmentThe biogas production from separately collected biowaste is also recommendable, based on energetic and ecological aspects.

Biowaste contains a high water content and no significant heating value.
The separate collection of biowaste makes sense.
The currently wide-spread idea of composting this type of waste leads to CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions, without generating any energy from it.

Therefore, the fermentation of organic waste must be established instead of composting.
A recycling of digestate remains possible.

Landfill Gas Utilization


Landfill Gas UtilizationThe disposal of untreated waste should be strictly avoided.
However, landfilling is still the world's dominant form of waste management.
Landfills emit gases that are harmful to the environment and climate but contain a high energetic potential.

The landfill gas collection and its use must be mandatory.



BEST PRACTICE

Waste-to-Energy (WtE) facility

Renergia, a brand new Waste-to-Energy (WtE) facility opened in Canton Lucerne, shows that Waste-to-Energy can provide reliable heat for industries.

Category: Incineration / Waste-to-Energy plant
Executing firm: Renergia Zentralschweiz AG

MBT Ljubljana, Slovenia

In Slovenia arises one of the largest and most modern waste treatment plants in Europe.

Category: Recycling / MBT
Executing firm: STRABAG AG

Flue Gas Cleaning

The final unit of the incineration plant is one of the most important parts as it has the objective of cleaning the air pollutants produced.

Category: Incineration
Executing firm: ete.a - Ingenieurgesellschaft für Energie– und Umweltengineering & Beratung mbH

Batch Dry Fermentation

The biogas produced from the waste can be converted in a CHP to electrical and thermal energy or fed as processed bio-methane into the natural gas grid or used as fuel (CNG).

Category: Recycling / Fermentation
Executing firm: BEKON Energy Technologies Co. & KG

MBT Warsaw, Poland

The Bio-Dry™ system is a static, aerated and flexibly enclosed reactor for the biological drying of various solid waste matters containing some biodegradable contents.

Category: Recycling / MBT
Executing firm: Convaero GmbH
