All types of world waste can be effectively utilized to produce clean energy and reduce GHG emissions that can be generated from incineration, and to protect against other harms from landfill. There are different types of waste, each will have their own best ways of conversion to energy. There is a great deal of R&D, systems and process engineering, material, chemical, economical, and management challenges to achieve clean waste to energy technologies and facilities, which requires multidisciplinary studies with a number of applications in different regions around the world, and with respect to the amount of infrastructure. Environmental and sustainability analyses are also an essential part of achieving clean waste to energy and ensure improved environmental protection measures.
- The overall focus of this Special Issue is to present state-of-the-art technologies of waste to energy, and to present papers that cover the analysis and engineering side of clean waste to energy with an emphasis on technology development, evaluation, and implementations, with verification and applications in a number of regions, and with respect to transportation fuel and infrastructure.
- The scope of this Special Issue will be on analysis of waste to energy processes, technology development, evaluation and verification, implementation, and economical analysis. This includes planning, risk management, control systems, and chemical process systems. It will also include sustainability analyses to demonstrate clean waste to energy technologies and processes compared with other alternatives to waste management.
- The main purpose of the Special Issue is to cover the latest research, studies, review, innovation, implementation, and applications in the different areas of waste to energy.
The Special Issue will be suitable to link to existing literature in the areas of waste management, materials science, chemical process, systems engineering, economical analysis, and sustainability analysis. It will support advances in research and development and technology implementation to promote waste to energy systems.
