Innovative Application Methods of Slags from High-Temperature-Gasifying-and-Direct-Melting System

JFE High-Temperature Gasifying and Direct Melting Furnace System (hereinafter Gasifying and Melting System) was developed to treat any kind of wastes and to contribute to energy and material recovery. Gasifying and Melting System was developed by integrating company’s original technologies for the iron-making blast furnace and fluidized bed for incineration plants, which the company cultivated over many years. The company’s advanced technologies in these two different fields were combined and integrated into the unique Gasifying and Melting System. This system is a proven technology that realizes high performance

Wastes are fed into the furnace with coke and limestone from top of the furnace. Coke plays a role as fire grates that keep flow path of gas and slag. Also it works as the heat source and prevents cool-down of slag. Since inside of the furnace reduction atmosphere is kept, hazardous heavy metals are vaporized to the gaseous phase and ash content is converted to slag. The slag discharged from furnace bottom is quenched in a water-granulation conveyor to produce granulated and environmentally safe slag and metals. The raw synthesis gas discharged from the furnace is introduced into the secondary combustion chamber in front of the boiler. Then, the raw synthesis gas is combusted completely in this chamber.

New Waste-to-Energy Facility Energy Works Hull, United Kingdom
© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (9/2016)
Energy Works Hull (the Project) is a milestone project for the UK’s waste and renewable energy sector. It will be one of the largest gasification facilities receiving MSW in the UK, indeed in Europe. It is one of the first advanced conversion technology Projects to receive its renewable electricity subsidies through a Contract for Difference, the mechanism by which the UK Government determined to move from Renewable Obligation Certificates following its Electricity Market Reform process. It also plays a significant part of the urban regeneration of the City of Hull. The level of community engagement and benefit has resulted in the project receiving a GBP19.9M grant from the European Union’s Regional Development Fund.

Application of Modified NiCrMo Alloy Systems for Boiler Tube Surface Protection in Waste-to-Energy Environments
© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (9/2016)
Internationally, Waste to Energy and Incineration markets continue to grow in capacity as fossil fueled facilities decline and nuclear generation is curtailed. With this comes a greater need to burn more corrosive materials combust at higher temperatures and extract more energy. The reliability burden that this places on operators of plants is re-opening opportunities for thermal spray solutions as a cost effective solution for boiler tube protection. Where maintenance costs, opportunity costs and access restrictions may preclude alternative in-situ technologies, thermal spray technology may fill a gap in providing new reliable and flexible process and materials technologies for both mid- and long-term protection of water wall and superheater tubes. While historically thermal spray coating solutions have had a spotty record in waste to energy environments, advances in both process and materials technology specifically for WTE environments is such that coating performance now approaches the performance of high alloy wrought materials. This is verified through accurate laboratory modeling and scale tests and trials conducted by OEM’s and plants.

Resource Recovery from Waste Using the Input Flexibility of Waste Gasification Technology

Nowadays, gasification of waste or biomass is becoming the great interest all over the world. Especially, gasification of municipal solid waste (MSW) has been well-researched in Japan. The development of MSW gasification technology was started in the 1970s in Japan because of oil crisis. Several technologies have been researched and developed. The Direct Melting System (DMS), which is the gasification and melting technology developed by Nippon Steel & Sumikin Engineering Co., Ltd., is one of the developed waste gasification technologies in this era. This technology was introduced for commercial use in Kamaishi City, Japan in 1979. As well as this waste technology, other gasification technologies have been developed for commercial use and installed.

Mobiles Prozessleitsystem zur modellprädiktiven Regelung von Abfallverbrennungsanlagen
© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (1/2014)
Die Behandlung von Abfällen beschränkt sich in Deutschland und weiten Teilen Europas großteils auf die thermische Wandlung des Energieinhaltes durch Verbrennung. Dieser thermische Wandlungsprozess ist begleitet durch verschiedene Sekundärprozesse. Zum einen steht der Wirkungsgrad der Energiewandlung und die Standzeit von Anlagen im Fokus und zum anderen besteht durch gesetzliche und wirtschaftliche Vorgaben die Notwendigkeit zur Emissionsminderung.

bifa-Text Nr. 57: Die Abfallwirtschaft im Jahr 2030 - Eine Szenarioanalyse nicht nur für Bayern
© bifa Umweltinstitut GmbH (5/2012)
In einer neuen Studie des bifa Umweltinstituts werden mögliche Entwicklungen der regionalen, nationalen und internationalen Rahmenbedingungen für die bayerische Abfallwirtschaft im Jahr 2030 dargestellt sowie deren Auswirkungen auf die Abfallwirtschaftsstrukturen und auf die Ökoeffizienz. Das Projekt wurde im Auftrag des Bayerischen Staatsministeriums für Umwelt und Gesundheit durchgeführt. Die Ergebnisse bieten auch anderen Behörden, Unternehmen und Verbänden in Deutschland eine Basis für die eigene Positionierung und Strategieentwicklung.
