It is a game changing Global Solution for the Waste Sector.
SEGREGATION NOT NEEDED
Selective collection policies are 100% respected, but the final design of the system does not make it essential. In remote municipalities, it would be a great saving in terms of waste collection and transport, and therefore the decreasing of environmental pollution.
It allows customizing and adapting the general design of the plant to the type of waste to be treated
INCREASES THE EFFICIENCY OF OTHER FACILITIES
Improving the performance of existing plants: WTC’s, methanisation or gasification plants, incinerators, biodiesel plants, etc.
AVOIDS THE SHIPMENT OF WASTE TO THE LANDFILL:
It reduces more than 75% of MSW, multiplying the life of landfills . . . and it may even be used for emptying of unsealed landfills. The recovery of materials reaches up to 80% of them.
Reduction/minimization of the environmental impact of waste and optimization/maximization of the financial return of the plants. WATER & ENERGY SELF SUFFICIENT PLANTS
CO2 EMISSIONS ARE REDUCED
Less landfills = less CO2 and methane emissions into the atmosphere.
No odors, no pathogens. Hygienic working environment.
THE ENERGY RECOVERY PROCESS IS VERY QUICK
Raised from the initial reception of the waste, the overall process of energy recovery is very fast. Amongst cleaning, separation – sorting, formatting or energy recovery pre-treatment and final suitability of by-product and storage, we estimate a maximum of 3 to 5 hours.
ALIGNED with EU and USA directives.
Fulfils the highest priority to recover for recycling of waste materials, as the foundation of sustainable development, without relegating to a second plane the energy recovery. It is, therebefore, an overall energy recovery from waste.
American and European directives not only seek to reduce the amount of waste produced in their territories, they also promote alternative uses of such waste. They include the following hierarchy of priorities, in descending order:
- The prevention and reduction of waste
- The reuse of waste
- The recycling of waste
- Other recovery operations
- Safe and environmental waste disposal.
Today this solution is a reality and has a name: iW2E
