Description

The Department of Energy (DOE) is investigating processes for the recovery of energy from urban wastes, with the intention of determining how the barriers standing in the way of commercialization of these processes can be overcome. Commercialization of any urban waste energy recovery process is constrained by many complex, uncertain components and interactions. Technical, economic, and institutional barriers presently exist which increase both the real and perceived risks of making such a venture commercially feasible. Current risks applicable to processes of this type may be categorized as: performance and reliability of technology; capital, operating, and maintenance costs; recovered product quality … continued below

Description

The Department of Energy (DOE) is investigating processes for the recovery of energy from urban wastes, with the intention of determining how the barriers standing in the way of commercialization of these processes can be overcome. Commercialization of any urban waste energy recovery process is constrained by many complex, uncertain components and interactions. Technical, economic, and institutional barriers presently exist which increase both the real and perceived risks of making such a venture commercially feasible. Current risks applicable to processes of this type may be categorized as: performance and reliability of technology; capital, operating, and maintenance costs; recovered product quality and quantity; waste (feedstock) quality and quantity; and market (energy buyer) stability. Anaerobic digestion is a biological technique for the production of usable gases from urban waste which provides a degree of promise for producing energy in commercial quantities. A risk analysis methodology suitable for the use of DOE's Office of Buildings and Community Systems (BCS) was developed by Dynatrend Inc. The specific process analyzed was in experimental operation as a pilot plant in Pompano Beach, Florida.
