Relevance, Targets and Technical Concepts of Mechanical-Biological Treatment in Various Countries

Different concepts of mechanical-biological waste treatment are explained alongside with parameters to assess the performance of the systems with respect to regulatory requirements.

Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) is a generic term for the integration of a number of waste management processes such as materials recovery facilities (MRF), refuse derived fuel (RDF) production, mechanical separation, sorting, composting and pasteurising. In order to minimise environmental nuisance for odour, fly and noise nuisance, these facilities are required to be housed within a building and normally under negative pressure. The use of bio-filters is also required to treat any odour problems. The MBT process is designed to take residual or black bin waste and process it so that valuable recyclable materials can be separated out and the biomass or “compostable” element is separated out and processed through an In Vessel Composting (IVC) or an Anaerobic Digestion (AD) system.

Development of local municipal solid waste management in the Western Transdanubia region of Hungary

Hungarian municipal solid wastes (MSW) management has developed tremendously over the past 15 years. More than 3,000 landfills and dumps had been closed, just to mention one improvement. However, still, lots of work is necessary to accomplish the EU’s ambitious aim of decreasing landfilling and increasing recycling and composting.

Adaption of a German MBT Process to the Boundary Conditions of Newly Industrialized Countries - Results of a pilot plant operated in Thailand
© Wasteconsult International (5/2011)
A mechanical biological treatment (MBT) process for municipal solid waste (MSW), suitable for the boundary conditions of newly industrialized countries (NIC), was developed and tested in Thailand. The main purpose was to make the process simple, robust and economic. The process focuses on the production of refuse-derived fuel (RDF) and a high biogas yield. The so-called BIOBUNK pilot plant consists of a shredder as mechanical stage and an aerobic mixed reactor as biological stage.

Heating value of residues and waste derived fuels from different waste treatment methods

Prevention of waste production at source, recycling of packaging waste and processing the organics are the main parts of the Hellenic waste management strategy. In the meanwhile recycling of packaging wastes may be compatible with incineration within integrated waste management systems.

In Germany, there are currently existing 46 MBT-Plants and about 20 up to 30 MTPlants operating a total capacity of around 8 million tons. Most of the plants meanwhile possess about almost 6 years operating experience and became an important part of Germany's waste industry.
