Abstract

Waste to Energy (WTE) carries a trade-off between energy generation and the energy spent on collection, transport and treatment. Major performance indicators are cost, Primary Energy Savings (PES), Carbon Footprint (CFP). This presentation analyses the trade-off introducing a new indicator - the Waste Energy Potential Utilisation (WPU). The results indicate that the impact of logistics and energy distribution can be significant, and distributed WTE architectures may be good candidates for optimal solution, subject to further economical and environmental assessment.
