Energy Recovery from Waste (SUT, year 1)

Module description

Lectures:

Solid waste composition and quantities, Classification of fuels, Energy potential in waste, Waste management and segregation, Waste to energy technology, Emission and energy balance of waste incineration, Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF or SRF) technology.
Lectures are conducted in an interactive way with use of audiovisual tools. During the lecture problem questions/topics are raised, students take part in the discussion about existing solutions as criterions for chosing the best one. Students are encouraged to participate in discussions during lectures and project hours. Students will be able to define the key points of various Waste to Energy technologies from technological and environmental points of view.

Project:

Research on composition of various fractions of waste. Analysis of possible properties of fuels produced from the waste and sludge. Energy efficiency of the incineration and co-combustion process. Proposal will be presented to the class and assessed by tutor and group.
