Modern grate-based thermal treatment of waste – the MARTIN WtE system

Waste-to-Energy (WtE) plants contribute substantially in the EU to the achievement of sustainable and efficient waste disposal and are nowadays a well proven, safe and reliable technology for the treatment of municipal solid waste (MSW). In the EU, waste incineration plays an important role in overall sustainable waste management systems.

MARTIN has been engaged in the planning and construction of WtE plants for over 60 years and has equipped more than 400 plants worldwide with its systems. The incineration technology has been developed and improved substantially. The plants are operated with a very high energy efficiency and with waste throughputs per line of between 4 t/hour and 50 t/hour.

The substantial amount of energy contained in the residual waste (MSW or RDF) is used to supply energy to district heating systems, cooling networks, steam for production processes or to convert energy to electricity.
The flue gas treatment (FGT) plants have to meet stringent emission limits according to the EU Directive 2010/75. Consequently, WtE plants today do not contribute significantly to the emission of pollutants as compared to other industries or sources.

The pollutants contained in the waste, such as Cl, F, S, heavy metals, etc. is separated in a well proven state-of-the-art FGT in various stages and combinations (electrostatic precipitator or fabric filter, wet scrubber or dry/semi-dry absorption systems as well as catalytic or non-catalytic reduction).
The main residue fraction remaining after incineration, the bottom ash, is mineralized and has to be landfilled or can be used for construction purposes, largely in road construction after separation and aging.
WtE plants play an important role in integrated municipal waste management. Rather than challenging the emphasis on waste reduction and recycling, they serve as complements to these processes and clearly avoid the landfill option, which carries a risk of polluting the soil and groundwater.
