BG 34/2021, The Illustrated Guide to Renewable Technologies, 2nd edition, written by Michelle Agha-Hossein and David Bleicher and published by BSRIA in 2021, states: ‘Waste-to-Energy (WtE) technology is an energy recovery process that converts chemicals from waste residues into practical forms of energy, mainly electricity but sometimes also heat. The fuel source is the domestic, construction and non-hazardous industrial waste that is left over when all the recycling possible has been done. Energy can be generated in a range of ways – incineration is the most popular while advanced thermal treatments (ATT) such as gasification, …or pyrolysis are less common..’
