Through Waste-to-Energy (WtE) technology, plants use waste as a renewable fuel to co-produce electricity, heating, and cooling for urban utilization. This professional book presents the latest developments in WtE technologies and their global applications. The first part of the book covers thermal treatment technologies, including combustion, novel gasification, plasma gasification, and pyrolysis. It then examines 35 real-world WtE case studies from around the world, analyzing technical information behind planning, execution, goals, and national strategies. Results through the years show the benefits of the technology through the life cycle of the products. The book also examines financial and environmental aspects.

"The mix of technical data, legislation issues, technological know-how and environmental aspects with existing WtE Plants is unique and was not performed till now. This book gives an excellent overview about the state-of-the-art of WtE Plants around the world, including facts and numbers which are often difficult to find because not collected in one single book. This lack of reliable, existing technical data well collected and explained is now closed with this excellent book."
-Sergio Escudero, Hitachi Zosen Inova AG, Zurich, Switzerland
"The different case studies shown in this book are a very good introduction of the variety of national and local situations. They lead to different answers to this worldwide problem of municipal waste treatment in the frame of circular economy and energy transition."
- Christophe Cord'Homme, CNIM Group, Paris, France
"...a comprehensive overview on relevant aspects around WtE and could, if the content keeps what is announced in the overview, be a useful tool for all those interested in sustainable waste management and the role WtE can play there."
