Comparison of Air Emissions From WTE and Fossil-Fueled Power

Publish Date: 2005

The one topic that seemed to have the best potential for being useful to persons in the industry would be the comparison of emissions from a modern WTE facility to those from the three most common sources of fuel for energy generation: coal, oil, and natural gas. The emissions comparison could be done on a pound of pollutant emitted per megawatt-hour generated or something similar to that. In our interactions with the public (on tours and during presentations), we are frequently asked how our industry fares, on an emissions/environmental basis, in comparison with the other three. It would be nice to have a handy reference to be able to consult in these instances.
