Waste incineration in the power generation industry

Thermal recycling of waste to energy

  • Instrumentation across the entire power generation process from fuel preparation until fly ash
  • Standardized differential pressure as well as Ultrasonic flow metering solutions for the water-steam cycle
  • Certified meters according to MID (measuring instruments directive) for CHP projects
  • Suitable technologies for corrosive applications in flue gas cleaning

Waste incinerators, also called W2E plants, fulfil several tasks today: they remove the waste and thermally recycle its energy content, converting it into electricity and heat. Typically, the furnaces are grate fired, and use separate controlled combustion zones. The sub-critical water-steam cycle propels a steam turbine generator for electricity production. The remaining heat is used in cogeneration schemes for space heating via a district heating network, or as process heat for industrial processes. Waste incinerators operate comprehensive flue gas cleaning process steps.

KROHNE can address the supply of all major process control instrumentation across the entire waste incineration process and BOP. Industry specific solutions and products meet the particular requirements of the waste incineration process - like standards, materials, testing and documentation.
