Waste to Energy

Naanovo's Waste to Energy (WTE) Division focuses on developing projects that utilizes a proprietary, innovative, modular WTE system design called WTE/Maax™. Each module has the following performance characteristics:

WTE/Maax™ Module
Fuel Input Daily Input Capacity Annual Input Capacity (tonnes) Hourly Output (Thermal Energy) Hourly Output (Electricity) Annual Output (Electricity) Potable Water
Municipal Solid Waste 180 Tonnes 64,000 15 MWt 7 MWe 59,640,000 kWh 38m³/hr

Naanovo waste combustors utilize state-of-the art flue gas scrubbing technology and are safe, reliable and environmentally friendly to operate. Under normal operating conditions, emissions from Naanovo combustors are dramatically less than the strictest Emission Standards in the world, including those of Europe and the United States.

One USA environmental agency that reviewed this data said that a plant of this design, if built in the USA, would set a new standard for low emissions. An interesting point of fact is that these results were obtained using a one-stage dry flue gas scrubber. Naanovo currently has a new two-stage scrubbing process which combines a first-stage dry scrubber with a newly designed second-stage wet scrubber to reduce flue gas emissions to almost zero. Because flue gases contain waste heat at very high temperatures, the waste heat can be recovered from the flue gases and converted into electricity using a low temperaturet turbine and generator (LTTG) unit.

Naanovo continues to focus on technologies that will keep the company on the leading edge of the WTE industry. Naanovo WTE plants being developed today will no doubt be most modern and most efficient solid waste combustion plants in the world with the future looking even brighter as the company explores the option of adopting new technology innovations currently under development, such as:

  • Water cooled grates
  • Energy efficient boilers
  • High efficiency generators
  • Low friction coatings for plant components
  • Additional efficiencies using new working fluids in LTTG units
  • Additional power production from use of heat-pumps to retrieve remaining left over heat from the system.
