Waste to Energy Technologies
Landfilling costs are increasing and space is becoming scarce. The expense and feasibility of developing new landfills have become prohibitive. While the physical and financial limits of recycling are being tested, there are still substantial amounts of waste going for disposal. Waste to energy, especially new and emerging technologies, are increasingly being considered as a way of reducing reliance on landfills. How do these work? What can they achieve? How safe are they? And what do they cost?
