  1. Waste In…Energy Out Greg Russell President, GARCO, Inc.

  2. What is Waste-to-Energy (WTE)? • Conversion of non-recyclable waste into useable energy including: • Heat • Electricity • Fuel • Using processes that include: • Combustion • Gasification

  3. The #1 WTE Benefit • Converting non-recyclable materials into energy: • Creating a renewable energy source out of waste • Reducing and controlling carbon emissions • Reducing methane gas generation in landfills

  4. Other Benefits to Industry • Waste management solution • Waste recovery process • Renewable energy • Community Involvement • Green house gas savings • Potential long term cost savings

  5. Where is Waste Generated? • Possible sources for the WTE cycle come from: • Industrial clients , Households, and basically Everywhere • Common waste forms include: • Municipal solid waste • Green waste (yard trimmings) • Construction/demolition • Special waste • Waste that is normally landfilled

  6. Where does it historically end? • As an example, the Uwharrie Landfill: • Has a daily permit for 3000 tons/day (on an annualized basis of 365 days) • Receives, on average, 2400 tons per day • Resulting in a life expectancy of 27 years • At the ECE (aka Bertie County) Landfill: • The daily permit is 1600 tons/day (annualized) • With an average of 1300 tons/day • And a life expectancy of 25 years

  7. Where can it end…(Typical WTE facility) • Covanta WTE facility located in Lorton, Virginia • Daily limit = 3,000 tons • Non-ferrous metal recovery – Recycle • 80 megawatts of electricity created daily • Meets the power needs for over 80,000 homes. • Sales directly to Dominion Virginia Power Co.

  8. Manufacturing Statistics? • Only 6% of raw materials used in a typical manufacturing process end up in the product. • 94% of raw material end up as a scrap or waste. • After only 1 use, 80% of products are discarded. • Within 6 weeks of the sale of goods, 99% of the original materials used become waste. • Waste is created much faster than it can be reconstituted or recycled into useful resources.
