7: Power from Scrap Tyres at Wolverhampton, UK

 A scrap tyre incinerator generates electricity for the local grid and produces by-products for the steel  and zinc industries. This method for disposing of waste tyres is environmentally acceptable and creates local employment. (Printed 1994)

16: 36 MW Power Station Fired by Waste Wood in Michigan, USA

A power station burning waste-wood is providing 36.2  MW of electricity to a city  in Michigan, USA while helping to mitigate environmental concerns. The Grayling Generating Station produces power for local industry and residents, generates a valuable soil additive, and shares  waste-water  treatment capacity with the new sewage plant for the city of Grayling. The generating station began commercial operation in June 1992 and has operated beyond its guaranteed level of availability. (Printed 1995)

70: Anaerobic Water Purification in a Brewery in the Netherlands

A compact, two-stage, waste-water purification  system has been installed in a Dutch brewery. It consists of an anaerobic reactor where organic compounds are converted into methane, and an aerobic reactor where hydrogen  sulphide is oxidised. The biogas is used within the  brewery and the purified waste water can be discharged into the sewer with no detrimental effects. (Printed 1998)

97: New Energy-from-Waste Furnace in Norway

A full-scale furnace for waste materials, using new technology, has been in operation in Norway since 1997.   The plant's low emissions  and high energy utilisation satisfy the EU's proposed limits for the year 2000 by a wide margin.  It is possible to build profitable plants of this type from as small as 3 MW output, allowing the   establishment of plants with relatively low throughput.

112: Biogas Combined Heat and Power in Sweden

In this project, 5060 apartment blocks are supplied with both electricity and heat from a CHP plant which processes about 30,000 tonnes/year of manure and around 5,000 tonnes/year of organic waste from industry. Since starting operation, the biogas plant has provided 3,0004,000 m3/day of gas, producing 450 kW of electricity and 650 kW of heat.

115: A Diesel Engine Fuelled by Spent Vegetable Oil

A 500 kW diesel engine, fuelled by a mixture of spent vegetable oil and marine oil and marine gas oil, has been developed in Japan and installed in a tempura frying plant. The project has provided an economical way of disposing of the spent oil.  The oil mixture is cheaper than using only spent oil that has been estrified, while the sulphur dioxide emissions are lower than those from marine gas alone. (Printed 2000)

118: Co-digestion of Manure with Industrial and Household Waste

The Kristianstad biogas plant is the first in Sweden to co-digest municipal solid waste with manure and other organic biomass to produce energy and fertiliser.  In 1998, the plant handled over 70,000 tonnes of waste and produced biogas equivalent to 20,000 MWh.  This project offers a sustainable solution to waste disposal problems encountered in many countries. (Printed 2000)
