Landfill waste, to burn or bury?

The next time you throw a dead battery or your old DVD player into the dumpster, think about how it will end up in a landfill somewhere. To burn or bury our waste should not be the real question. The question should be: to recycle or to compost?

  1. I am fine with recycling and composting but there is some waste tan cannot be composted neither recycled…this waste has a high net calorific value (NCV). The only thing we have to do is sort it from the MSW. What we obtain in the end is Solid Recuperated Fuel (SRF) a product that can reach 20 MJ/kg with less than 0,6% content in Cl a no heavy metals. It’s no need to built expensive incinerators, the SRF can be used in cement industry and existing power plants substituting solid fuels and saving emissions of CO2 (more than 1 ton of CO2 per ton of solid fuel). We recuperate the energy, save solid fuels and avoid land filling.
