It's Time For Waste To Energy (WTE) replacing Landfilling Waste

Time to continue more about Waste to Energy (WTE)It took me sometimes to do research about this. Related post about this here.

What we should dump into our dustbin

Land fill site (Landfilling Waste) is also known as site for the disposed of waste materials by using burial method. As we know, burial method is the oldest form of waste treatment.

Landfilling Waste

Waste To Energy is a form of energy recovery. Waste To Energy processes produce electricity and/or heat directly through combustion, or produce a combustible fuel commodity, such as methane, methanol, ethanol or synthetic fuels.

Waste To Energy Plantation
Improvement of technology really changes our daily life to be easier. The new technology of the Waste To Energy (WTE) uses waste (trash or rubbish from household) as fuel to be power generation. This mean that our waste actually beneficial to us.

Step by step of the Waste To Energy

Using the Waste To Energy (WTE) plantation, this actually able to generate electricity by using our waste. I feel this way will be more environmental-friendly source of energy. Moreover, the waste that already been disposed to the landfill to be reusing for Waste To Energy purpose. With this continuously, this actually able to reduce waste to the landfill.

In addition, Waste To Energy plantation are generally setup locally it creates jobs for every level of the profession. There will give more chances for everyone to get jobs opportunity.

Moreover, from my research there are at least 13 plantation of the Waste To Energy (WTE) in UK (United Kingdom). The largest Waste To Energy plantation is called Allington Quarry and is located in Kent. Currently it sorts 500,000 tonnes of household waste per year into 65,000 tonnes of recycling and rubbish than can be converted into energy. Each year Allington Quarry creates enough power for 120,000 homes.

Here is the animation of the Waste To Energy

Waste To Energy plantation should replace landfilling waste. All the waste that been collected from us will be send to the Waste To Energy plantation and will be converted to some source of energy. We should make sure that our country, Malaysia must be in clean, healthy and beautiful as well.
