Emission Regulation and Environmental Awareness Driving R&D Activities in Waste Incineration Technologies for Improved Operational Efficiency and Lesser Environmental Impact

Increasingly stringent emission regulations and growing environmental awareness has been driving widespread adoption of clean energy solutions adhering to low carbon protocols. On the other side, growing urbanization and industrialization across the globe, which has led towards growth in consumption of goods, and materials, has resulted in a waste management challenge. Waste incineration technologies have the potential of addressing both the above-mentioned challenges: waste reduction and low carbon energy generation (heat generated via the process of waste incineration can be utilized for low carbon electricity generation). In recent years, research and development activities in waste incineration systems are on the rise, mainly focused on improving operational efficiency and decreasing the negative environmental impact.

Researchers across the globe are working towards technological advancements focussed on improving the emission treatment systems of waste incinerators, modular and cost-effective and energy-efficient designs. Advanced sensory devices like thermographs for real-time operational monitoring (enabling quick adjustments in operational parameters) and catalyst-based tail-end equipment for removing harmful emissions are amongst the key innovations leading the technological advancements in waste incineration technologies.

This research, ‘Advancements in Waste Incineration Technology’ focuses on emerging innovations and the latest developments in waste incineration technologies and related waste-to-energy technologies, along with their respective technology readiness levels. In addition to the above, movers and shakers in the industry, major challenges faced by the technology, and growth opportunities for industry participants is provided.
