The race is on

In numerous reports, we are currently at crossroads. Leading economists have called for an immediate £277bn international fund in a combined attack on the worldwide economic crisis and global warming by supporting low-carbon technologies such as renewable energy.

Benefits and Incentives

Existing landfill waste streams can be diverted, and with less landfill the future emission of undesirable greenhouse gases can be reduced. In terms of reducing carbon emission, it’s a more efficient form of electricity generation than existing coal-fired, and most renewable or other waste to electricity models, such as incineration. In contrast to incineration, plasma gasification emits fewer pollutant gases, and no fly ash or waste ash.

Cleaner technologies

For the first time there’s an overwhelming business case to drive development of low carbon footprint EFW technologies to successful operation. However, more infrastructure is needed to divert waste from landfil and generate power.
