Recovering Energy from Waste
Waste materials could potentially be used as an energy source through a variety of energy recovery approaches. Researchers are working to design and operate systems and infrastructure to recover energy from wastes in a way that minimizes risk to human health and the environment. The research can then be used in helping regulators and partners achieve a higher degree of sustainability by recovering energy from waste materials
- Tools to optimize energy recovery from wastes.
- Analysis of improved materials recovery and beneficial use options from wastes.
