Waste composition and the lifespan of your EfW Facility
The composition of waste feedstock can vary over time, or indeed in irregular conditions such as the latest COVID Pandemic, which can affect the lifespan of your Energy from Waste (EfW) facility.
Waste streams can be affected by government policies or incentives to divert certain materials from landfill, even the general public’s consumption patterns at kerbside collection have an impact on EfW feedstock.
Whilst EfW facilities are designed to allow for some marginal flexibility in feedstock volume and composition, being proactive and monitoring the quality of your feedstock can positively influence the lifespan of your facility.
Through composition analysis, you can gain a detailed understanding of the makeup of your input material, build a reliable data profile of your waste. This profile is your reference point to understanding which composites are affecting the overall lifespan of your EfW facility.
