Third WA WtE facility receives EPA’s tick – AustraliaPosted on February 5, 2015 by DrRossH in Landfills and Disposal
Phoenix Energy’s $380 million facility will receive and process up to 400,000 tonnes of household waste, enough to produce up to 36MW of electricity for the South West Interconnected System and power about 46,000 homes.
Dr Vogel explained that following the removal of the recyclable materials, the residual solid waste collected from households would be the primary fuel source for the plant.
Waste delivered to the plant would be fed through the combustion system to produce heat to be used in the plant’s boilers to produce high-pressure steam. This steam would then drive a turbine, producing electricity.
A good way to eliminate plastic waste accumulating in our environment.
