Waste-to-energy (WtE) or Energy-from-Waste (EfW) is the process of generating energy in the form of electricity and/or heat from the management of waste.
At Planet One Solutions, by using this cutting-edge technology we are able to produce energy from waste and other fuels without direct combustion. These technologies have the potential to produce more electric power from the same amount of fuel than would be possible by direct combustion at a far higher efficiency rate than any other WtE tech on the market today.
WASTE MANAGEMENT PROCESS
Rainmakers Worldwide Solid Waste to Green Electricity Technology Large Scale
State of the art technology combines sterilization, sorting, drying, pyrolysis and electricity production under one roof which is revolutionary in the waste processing and waste to energy industry. High in efficiency, scale and pollution control, this versatile technology produces massive amounts of electricity from municipal, commercial, industrial, agricultural, construction, hospital, old tires, oil and oil sludge, coal ash, contaminated soil and sewage waste. The most important feature of the plant is that it is odor and pollution free as it has NO Emissions and no smoke stacks and no leaching into the ground. Additionally it can be utilized to clean up contaminated soil and return completely clean soil for reuse. The plant is available in various sizes and produces multiple income streams from tipping fees, sale of recyclables, sale of electricity, sale of renewable energy credits and sale of other residue for road building or soil additives. The modular structure allows construction of the plant in phases. Small scale plants start at processing 25 tons of Mixed waste per day and generate 1 Megawatt of power per hour. Large scale plants start at processing 450 tons per day of mixed solid waste and generate approximately 15 Megawatts of power, green diesel or synthetic gas or all of these. It produces green employment from the construction of the plant to the operations and finally to the distribution of generated green electricity. Full financing through a power purchase agreement is available for this technology requiring NO investment on the part of the client.
Rainmakers Worldwide Containerized Waste to Green Electricity or Fuel Small Scale
State of the art No Burn, Oxygen Free, Pyrolysis technology combines pyrolysis and electricity or fuel production from within a 40 foot shipping container. High in efficiency, scale and pollution control, this versatile technology produces pollution free green electricity or green diesel, from Municipal, dry Biomass, Plastics, Tires, Biomedical, Hospital, Toxic, Sewage, Debris, Construction or Mixed Wastes The most important feature of the plant is that it is odor and pollution free as it has NO Emissions and no smoke stacks and no leaching into the ground. Being containerized it can be deployed efficiently for emergency or off grid applications. The plant is available in various sizes and produces multiple income streams from tipping fees, sale of electricity, sale of diesel and sale of residue for road building or soil additives. It generates electricity and thermal power for its own operations thereby reducing the operations cost of the technology.
Minimum plant size starts at processing 24 tons per day of mixed waste streams including hazardous waste, producing 1 megawatt of electricity per hour. From here there is no upper limit on how much waste can be processed per day. Plants can also produce green diesel, aviation fuel or all of these from mixed waste streams or from plastics. It produces green employment from the construction of the plant to the operations and finally to the distribution of generated green electricity.
This technology is available for global installation.
WASTE MANAGEMENT AND ITS MAJOR TRENDS
WtE is a real solution for a real need…in a real world of waste production.
Using macroeconomic data from 30 Organizations for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries, it has been estimated that a 1% increase in national income creates a 0.69% increase in municipal solid waste amount.
Amounts of waste are largely determined by two factors: first, the population in any given area, and second, its consumption patterns – which are controlled by the evolution of Gross Domestic Product per Capita (GDP/c).
According to the UN, between now and 2025, the world population will increase by 20% to reach 8 billion inhabitants (from 6.5 today).
Moreover, by 2050, the total population will be around 9.5 billion, unless specific control measures are broadly adopted. If this becomes a reality then a population of 8-8.5 billion in 2050 may be considered a successful stabilization of numbers.
Besides overpopulation, a remarkable increase in GDP/c especially in developing countries is on its way. In 2025, world production will have doubled in relation to 2005. By 2050 the world production may again have doubled compared to 2025. The global average GDP/c around 2025 will be more or less one and a half times the current one, and in a business-as-usual scenario it may be fourfold around 2050. Jeffrey Sachs has estimated that in developing countries the GDP/c will be around MXN 763,630.46 in 2050, which is the same as the USA GDP/c in 2005! It also seems that we are living in a richer world where we will have higher actual numbers of poor people, but less in terms of percentages.
Obviously, both the increase of the population and the remarkable growth of global GDP/c will drive an increase in waste volumes.
