The technology of eco waste solutions
The technology of eco waste solutions aims to provide proven solutions to smaller waste management markets that will benefit from technical expertise to improve their reliability, ease of servicing and simplicity of operation. The main focus of the technology is the disposal of waste in the most cost effective and environmentally friendly way. There have been a lot of controversies regarding the use of incinerators but given the high operating temperature of the equipment, the heat can be captured and reused as an alternative energy source. Incinerators can be expensive investments for waste disposal but if it becomes an optional energy source, the investment can be easily offset. However, the best benefit of eco waste solution is heat recovery that will change the chemistry of emissions into non-hazardous gases.
The innovative waste to energy solution
Incineration is a waste disposal method where hazardous waste is subjected to combustion to reduce its volume. Incinerators convert solid waste into heat, gas, steam and ashes. Waste to energy means a facility that burns waste in a furnace or boiler to generate steam or heat with air pollution control systems to ensure compliance with environmental regulations while maximizing the heat recovery. There is a high potential for heat recovery even in the smaller mobile units because its continuous operations will ensure that there is availability of heat throughout the day. With the generation of steam, valuable by-product is generated which can be used for on-site processes like driving turbines for electricity. The technology of eco waste solutions also removes the concern over the high cost of fuel in running the incinerator because heat recovery improves the economics of investing in the equipment.
Eco waste solutions as the better option for waste disposal
The practice of waste disposal through landfills remains to be common practice in many countries. Most of the landfills are unmanaged which makes them a hazard to health and the environment. Open dumpsites generate liquid leachate and attracts vermin. Another common product of landfills is methane which is generated from the anaerobic breakdown of organic waste. Methane causes the odor problems of landfills. It is also a greenhouse gas. Disposal of hazardous medical wastes and animal carcasses into the landfills would be generally unsafe but not if they have been combusted and compacted in smaller volumes. Pathogens contained within hazardous waste products are destroyed by the extreme heat that is generated by the incinerator. Moreover, heat generated is continuous, stable and constant to be easily recovered.
