towards Power2FuelTorsten Buddenberg and Christian Bergins
The increasing feed-in of electricity from fluctuating renewable energy sources (RES) can lead to sporadic excess supply of electricity to the grid, causing curtailment of RES plants as well as existing thermal power plants.
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.

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.

Energy Works Hull (the Project) is a milestone project for the UK’s waste and renewable energy sector. It will be one of the largest gasification facilities receiving MSW in the UK, indeed in Europe. It is one of the first advanced conversion technology Projects to receive its renewable electricity subsidies through a Contract for Difference, the mechanism by which the UK Government determined to move from Renewable Obligation Certificates following its Electricity Market Reform process. It also plays a significant part of the urban regeneration of the City of Hull. The level of community engagement and benefit has resulted in the project receiving a GBP19.9M grant from the European Union’s Regional Development Fund.
