Improving Electrical Efficiency of Waste to Energy Plants
Deadline for application:
Fri, 21 Sep. 2018
Research proposals to increase energy recovery from advanced thermal treatment technologies for municipal solid waste (MSW) management
– Applicants could propose novel technologies, techniques and/or innovative processes, at sub-system and/or component level, where R&D can lead to an increase in the electrical efficiency of the plant. Applicants shall demonstrate and show the theoretical thermodynamic calculations in the project submission on how the proposed R&D could help contribute to the target of 27% and above net electrical efficiency of the plant.
– Examples of proposal that cover the components, sub-systems and processes of a large scale WTE plant could include, but are not limited to, the following areas:
a) Maximising heat recovery for steam generation using novel heat exchange concepts;
b) Improving the efficiency of steam turbine Rankine cycle such as raising the superheated steam pressure and temperature to the turbine inlet; and
c) Developing innovative method of heat rejection for condensation of the saturated vapour or wet vapour from the steam turbine exit to saturated liquid at below atmospheric pressure (where the saturation temperature is as close to ambient temperature as feasible).
