Biomass power uses fuel from organic materials such as scrap lumber, manure or waste materials, to generate energy for electricity production. Other Waste-to-Energy feedstocks include non-recyclable and non-compostable solid waste which contributes to a circular economy.
The Challenge: When anything is burned, it can create emissions and ash.
The Solution: Along with CCUS to capture emissions, various technologies across calcination, graphitization, carburization, controlled oxidation, oxide reduction, purification, pyrolysis, drying, reduction, solid-solid reaction, gas-solid reaction, metalizing, debinding, and waste remediation help to reduce emissions. Biomass power and Waste-to-Energy should be part of a broader sustainable waste management plan that encompasses reducing, reusing and recycling materials.
