Waste Incineration Power Generation

The waste incineration power generation system burns municipal solid waste at high temperatures in a rotary kiln incinerator. Under high-temperature oxidation, combustible waste is converted into harmless substances such as carbon dioxide and water. The ash and residue after incineration are less than 20% of the original volume of the waste, significantly reducing the amount of solid waste. Additionally, this process can eliminate various pathogens, providing strong protection for the urban environment. Compared to traditional landfill methods, the mature and reliable waste incineration technology not only saves valuable land resources but also achieves dual benefits of power generation and heating through heat recovery.

Optimizing Cost Structure & Creating Economic Benefits

By converting waste into valuable energy, we effectively reduce waste treatment costs. Compared to other energy supply methods, the operational costs of waste-to-energy incineration are relatively low, reducing the overall operating costs of the power system. As technology continues to advance and scale expands, waste incineration projects will demonstrate more economic benefits in terms of job creation and investment environment improvement, providing a more competitive energy solution for the construction of power systems.

Efficient Energy Recovery & Reuse

GEMCO waste incineration plant maximizes resource utilization by directly or regeneratively using materials and energy from waste. Each ton of municipal solid waste incinerated can generate approximately 250-300 kWh of electricity. A waste-to-energy plant processing 1,000 tons of waste per day can produce up to 100 million kWh of electricity annually, equivalent to saving over 30,000 tons of standard coal. Additionally, the incineration residue can be processed into non-fired bricks for use in construction sites and road paving. Treated landfill leachate can be used for cooling operations and irrigation within the plant area, achieving resource recycling.

GEMCO Incineration Power Plant Advantages

Superior Odor Control for a Cleaner Environment

In the waste storage area, GEMCO Energy utilizes advanced air curtain technology to physically separate indoor and outdoor air, effectively reducing the exchange of air and minimizing odor diffusion. Additionally, the waste storage area is maintained under negative pressure, further preventing the escape of foul odors, and thereby protecting the surrounding environment.

Maximized Resource Recycling Through Advanced Leachate Utilization

Waste is stored in the waste pit for 3-5 days, allowing it to dry further and ensure more efficient combustion. The leachate generated during storage undergoes a series of meticulous treatment processes, including sedimentation, heating, primary A/O (anoxic/oxic), secondary A/O, and UF (ultrafiltration) systems. After these treatments, the leachate is repurposed in the plant for cooling operations and irrigation, achieving effective resource recycling.

Cutting-Edge Flue Gas Purification for Ultra-Clean Emissions

The flue gas produced during waste incineration is treated through a comprehensive multi-stage process, including SNCR (Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction) for denitrification within the furnace, rotary spray reactor for acid gas removal, lime injection for further acid gas removal, activated carbon adsorption, baghouse filtration, and SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) for low-temperature denitrification. This ensures that the emissions meet EU standards, significantly reducing air pollution.

Advanced Waste Incinerator for Outstanding Efficiency

GEMCO Energy’s waste incineration system employs a two-stage combustion technology. Waste is first incinerated at high temperatures in the rotary kiln, with the resulting flue gas entering the secondary combustion chamber. This chamber is a cylindrical structure composed of steel plates and refractory materials, maintaining internal temperatures between 1100°C and 1200°C. The flue gas remains in the secondary combustion chamber for over 2 seconds, effectively breaking down 99.99% of dioxins and other harmful compounds.

1. Wastes Storage System

The raw material storage system is designed for the reception and storage of waste materials. By allowing the waste to stand and drain excess liquids, this system enhances the calorific value of the waste, enabling more thorough and efficient incineration.

2. Incineration System

The incineration system comprises a rotary kiln and a secondary combustion chamber. Waste is fed into the rotary kiln via the feeding mechanism, where it undergoes high-temperature incineration for approximately 45-75 minutes and is fully combusted into high-temperature flue gas and ash. The flue gas then enters the secondary combustion chamber for further combustion, ensuring the complete breakdown of dioxins and other harmful substances.

3. Fuel System

This system uses natural gas as the primary fuel. For ignition, the combustion system employs No. 0 light diesel. Cold starts take approximately 16 hours, while hot starts take about 2-5 hours. The fuel consumption of the incinerator depends mainly on the number of starts, waste composition, calorific value, and moisture content.

4. Air Supply System

The combustion air is supplied by blowers. The air supply system includes primary and secondary fans, an atomizing fan, and air ducts. These components supply air to the primary combustion chamber, secondary combustion chamber, and for atomization. Each air duct is equipped with a regulating damper, and the entire system is adjusted via signals from the PLC control unit to achieve optimal combustion efficiency.

5. Waste Heat Recovery System

The flue gas exiting the secondary combustion chamber is around 1150°C. The waste heat boiler utilizes the heat generated from waste incineration to convert cooling water into steam. Part of the steam is directed to the steam turbine generator to produce electricity, while another portion is fed back into the boiler feed pump and reused in the boiler. Additionally, the desalination system ensures a sufficient supply of demineralized water to replenish the boiler.

6. Flue Gas Treatment System

To ensure that emissions meet regulatory standards, the flue gas purification process employs a comprehensive treatment technology, including SNCR for denitrification, rotary spray reactor for acid gas removal, lime injection for further acid gas removal, activated carbon adsorption, baghouse filtration, and SCR for low-temperature denitrification. This integrated approach ensures the flue gas is thoroughly purified before being released into the atmosphere.

The Hazards of Municipal Waste

Municipal waste poses significant threats to the environment and human health, necessitating advanced waste management solutions. Landfills consume valuable land, disrupt agriculture, and damage surface vegetation, harming the ecological balance. Toxic leachate from waste contaminates soil and water, reducing soil fertility and polluting water sources, which can introduce harmful substances into the food chain. Air pollution is another major concern, as fine waste particles and harmful gases, including ammonia and sulfides, are released into the atmosphere, leading to respiratory issues and environmental degradation. These factors highlight the urgent need for effective waste incineration and waste pyrolysis technologies to mitigate the detrimental impacts of urban waste.

GEMCO Energy’s waste incineration power generation system has demonstrated outstanding performance in environmental protection and energy utilization, contributing to the sustainable development of municipal solid waste treatment and green energy.
