A large sacle WTE project in Sri Lanka

A large scale WTE (Waste to Energy) project will be completed in end of the next year. In this proposed plant a plasma incinerator will be used to burn solid waste. The plasma generator which consume 2.5 - 3 MW electricity is producing a environment of temperature about 10000 0F and in this environment what ever the waste is completely destroyed and broken down into its basic elemental components. The energy recovery techniques will able to generate 4o MW from this plant & it will destroy the waste and generate electricity to national grid.

Colombo Renewable Energy (Pvt) Ltd is involving with this project & Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) will buy the electricity from this plant for a period of 20 years.

This technology is using in world for specific solid waste like hazardous metals in automobile industry, infectious medical waste in health sector ...etc. But this can be the first time in world which uses for municipal waste.
