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 primary treatment of waste. WtE is a form of energy recovery. Most WtE processes produce electricity and/or heat directly through combustion, or produce a combustible fuel commodity, such as methane, methanol, ethanol or synthetic fuels.

Over the last several years, European countries have been phasing out landfilling. Similar inititavies are going on in Asia, too. Nickolas J. Themelis, Director of the Earth Engineering Center and chair of the Global Waste-to-Energy Research and Technology Council (WTERT) Council notes, “China offers a $30 credit per megawatt-hour of

Zero Waste to Landfill: Where Does the United States Stand?

On average, the top eight countries in Europe for landfill diversion (Germany, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, and Norway) are putting just 2% of their solid wastes into landfills. Each is recycling and composting at least 50% of its wastes, and collectively they employ 228 thermal waste-to-energy (WTE)

While waste to energy is the third-most-preferred municipal solid waste approach behind source reduction/reuse and recycling/composting, some 29 million tons of MSW—12% of total generated—were combusted for energy recovery in 2011, according to “Municipal Solid Waste in the US: Facts and Figures.” The Energy Recovery Council—a national trade organization representing
