Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)

There are many options for managing residual waste, referred to as Municipal Solid Waste (MSW). If you use steam in the process of handling MSW, or generate steam during the process, we can help.

 
Our expertise extends to the recovery of energy from waste. With our deep knowledge and experience we can help you design an efficient, stable and safe recovery process system.
We can help manage any of your steam projects, large or small, from designing bespoke solutions to providing maintenance and aftercare support.
We have an international reputation for steam system training and can offer a range of onsite or offsite tailored packages. Over a dozen courses cover all aspects of the steam system and are approved by BTEC, CIBSE and the CEA.

Technology Process What we can offer
Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) MBT plants vary in their design: Mechanical means sorting the waste pieces. Biological means either drying the waste so it can be burnt to generate energy as a Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) or composting the organic part of the waste to produce compost like material. We have the knowledge and products to support you in producing dry waste that meets current standards.
  • Feedwater treatment and storage
  • Control valves
  • Chemical dosing equipment
  • Heat exchangers and steam ancillary equipment
  • Water system isolation valves check valves and air eliminators
  • Gas system liquid drainers
  • Service agreements
  • Training
Energy from Waste This type of facility combusts waste in a controlled environment to generate energy, in the form of electricity and or heat. To capture heat from the high or low pressure side of the process, we can provide:
  • Feedwater treatment and storage systems
  • Chemical dosing
  • Pressure and temperature control systems
  • Desuperheaters
  • Heat exchangers
  • Steam ancillary equipment
  • Service agreements
  • Training
Autoclaves and Thermal Hydrolysis Autoclaving involves the soaking of the waste with steam in a sealed pressurised environment to sterilise the waste. After steaming, the recyclables (plastics and metals) are removed. The resulting primary output is a fibrous floc material, which can be used as a Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF). Boiler house equipment and controls to maximise the efficiency of the steam system.
  • Feedwater treatment and storage systems
  • Chemical dosing
  • Pressure and temperature control systems
  • Heat exchangers
  • Steam ancillary equipment
  • Service agreements
  • Training
Advance Thermal Treatment (ATT) Includes the thermal treatment of Gasification and Pyrolysis where the waste is broken down under pressure. This generates a gas that can be used to generate heat and electricity.
  • We can provide :
  • Plate heat exchange packages
  • Steam distribution systems incorporating boiler controls, desuperheaters, pressure reduction and steam ancillary products
  • Service agreements
  • Training
