Mitsubishi Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Gasification and Ash Melting System
[ Waste to Energy System ] [ ENVIRONMENT ]
With heightened concerns for global warming, environmentally friendly ways to incinerate waste have become of critical.
Kushiro MSW Gasification & Ash Melting Plant
|Waste treatment capacity
||240 t/day (120 t/day × 2 units)
|Electric generating capacity
||Municipal Solid Waste
|Dioxins at the stack
||0.00011 to 0.0055 ng-TEQ/Nm3
||more than 280 days
- The process of gasification and ash melting of the system allows high recyclability compared to conventional incineration systems.
- The system achieves an extremely high level of control of dioxins emission, not only in the gas emitted but also in the construction material by-products produced from melted ash.
- Metals (aluminum, iron, and steel) contained in the waste can be recovered and recycled with rather high sales value compared to metals from conventional incineration.
- Dioxin-free melted ash or molten slag can be used as construction materials such as asphalt for paving roads.
