The only sustainable means for managing post-recycling urban wastes are waste to energy (WTE) plants. Dr. Efstratios Kalogirou, member of the Global WtERT Council and co-founder of WtERT-Greece has published a very interesting book on modern WTE technology and some of its applications around the world. It is the first book of its kind and can be a useful addition to libraries, because the general public know little about the enormous progress made in this technology in the last 25 years.
“The mix of technical data, legislation issues, technological know-how and environmental aspects with existing WtE Plants is unique and was not performed till now. This book gives an excellent overview about the state-of-the-art of WtE Plants around the world, including facts and numbers which are often difficult to find because not collected in one single book. This lack of reliable, existing technical data well collected and explained is now closed with this excellent book.”

“The different case studies shown in this book are a very good introduction of the variety of national and local situations. They lead to different answers to this worldwide problem of municipal waste treatment in the frame of circular economy and energy transition.”
— Christophe Cord’Homme, CNIM Group, Paris, France
“…a comprehensive overview on relevant aspects around WtE and a useful tool for all those interested in sustainable waste management and the role WtE can play there.”
