waste to energyThere are many different waste to energy systems and processes that create energy from waste streams. CP will compliment your process with the most reliable and efficient front end systems.

  • Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT): MBT plants are designed to process mixed household, commercial and industrial waste. The process combines a front-end sorting facility with a form of biological treatment such as composting or anaerobic digestion.
  • Refuse-Derived Fuel (RDF): RDF is produced by shredding and dehydrating municipal solid waste. Glass and metals as well as other non-combustible materials are removed by mechanical separation leaving only the combustible materials such as plastics and biodegradable waste. RDF is often used in cement kilns and gasifiers.
  • Pyrolisys: Pyrolisys is the thermo-chemical decomposition of organic materials at high temperatures without the use of oxygen. It is used mainly to produce charcoal, methanol, gasoline, biofuel and other chemicals, and to turn waste into safely disposable substances.
  • Anaerobic digestion: Anaerobic digestion is a process in which microorganisms break down biodegradable material without the use of oxygen; it is good to use on material with high moisture content. Anaerobic digestion is used to manage waste and produce energy. The end result, after many series of digestion treatments, is methane and carbon dioxide.
  • Gasification: Gasification is a process that converts organic materials into carbon monoxide and hydrogen, the resultant gas is a source of syngas, renewable energy when it is not derived from fossil fuels. That organic material reacts at high temperatures with a controlled amount of oxygen and without the use of combustion. Some types of gasification are plasma arc waste disposal and fluid bed gasification.
  • Biodrying: Biodrying is the process where biodegradable material is heated rapidly throughout the initial stages of composting, which removes moisture from the waste and reduces it in size and weight. It is a fairly quick process that uses minimal electricity and aerobic bacteria often in mechanical biological treatment facilities. It can be used in the refuse derived fuel process or applied to mechanical biological treatment plants.
