Pyrolysis of the Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)


The plant performance is related to the composition of feedstock input (calorific value and moisture content). Average MSW content varies from country to country since there is the difference in climate eating patterns, and initial sorting of waste.

Due to the built-in design features, the MPSC system successfully accommodates sudden fluctuations in the waste quality from its average value, which occur within the facility. The pyrolysis system for treatment of MSW and other wastes demonstrates excellent practical performance in controlling the emission of harmful substances such as dioxins with levels dramatically lower than regulation values. No special chemicals, which may have impact on the overall environmental performance, are required for the process. 

The MPSC plant does not produce waste water effluent from the gas cleaning system. Along with this obvious environmental advantage it also makes the system less expensive. Another environmental aspect is the reduction of the residuals to be sent for landfill disposal. Solid remains after the treatment at the facility can be used in the building industry.

Typically 100 tpd plant treating MSW with a calorific value of 8,4 MJ/kg and moisture 40% (thermal energy from wastes ~ 9,72 MWh) the MPSC process generates 2 MW of electricity. Consequently the MPSC process will annually generate ~14.4 GW gross electrical output and ~10,5 GW of net electrical energy is supplied to the grid (300 days operation per annum).
