Overview

Combustion with Waste-to-energy (WTE) approach is the key technology used to manage municipal waste in Singapore. Out of the 21,000 ton of waste generated per day, 40% of which is non-recyclable, are incinerated in the 5 WTE plants in Singapore. The sector recovers energy equivalent to 250 MW of electricity, with an additional 120MW when Tuas One IP starts operation in 2019.

This module covers the following topics:
  • Choices of waste conversion technologies available
  • How to manage emission from WTE plants
  • Ash and slag management
  • Key design principles
  • Common design and operational challenges.
As the industries are heading towards lower carbon footprint with higher energy efficiency, it is essential for engineers to be competent in knowing the existing technologies and its limitations via Life Cycle Analysis. This will help to push for a breakthrough in the way we manage non-recyclable waste and to achieve high efficiency and low pollution. The skills acquired is transferable to other power generation emission control and waste management sectors.

Speakers / Trainers

What You’ll Learn

  • Describe waste to energy, ash-slag management and energy recovery technologies available in the market.
  • Identify geographical, municipal profile, economic and environmental policy aspects for a WTE feasibility study.
  • Apply environmental and safety constraints in the systems/technologies evaluation.
  • Describe emission control technologies available in the market.
  • Evaluate choices of WTE technologies based on the types of waste and waste management constraints of the municipals.
  • Identify key WTE plant design parameters.
  • Assess waste profile and select necessary emission control systems for the WTE plant.
  • Design a municipal WTE plant with economic justification.
