Material vs. Energy Recovery – An Assessment Using Computational Tools NERUDA and JUSTINE

The paper describes a continuing work on a unique approach of a Waste-to-Energy (WtE) Project assessment and related risk analysing. It is based on long time developed computational tools NERUDA and JUSTINE which support decision making in the field of waste Management.

This paper deals with recent improvement of in-house developed large-scale computational tools NERUDA and JUSTINE. The NERUDA tool provides support for strategic decision making in the field of waste management. The key part of NERUDA is a waste management related logistic problem. The logistic problem is solved by mathematical programming and is used to simulate competitive environment in waste management. The JUSTINE tool is an optimization model recursively applied to region divided into several sub regions and also their parts. The optimization model is used to obtain estimates of desired parameters that can be used for waste production, composition and calorific value prediction. A new important module representing current technologies for waste sorting – mechanical-biological treatment plant (MBT) and sorting line – are described in more detail in the paper.

The practical contribution of described computational tools is presented through a case study. The study is based on important outcomes of a comprehensive project of the Ministry of Environment of the Czech Republic, which describes regional waste management parameters on microregional level. The study also introduces the tool’s potential for abroad applications in countries with developing waste management (e.g. eastern markets).

Development of local municipal solid waste management in the Western Transdanubia region of Hungary
© Lehrstuhl für Abfallverwertungstechnik und Abfallwirtschaft der Montanuniversität Leoben (11/2020)
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.

The trend of increasing digitalization and servitization affects all industrial companies in all sectors including the waste and recycling industry, as we will present in our case study. In this case, the company ATM Recyclingsystems implemented an IoT platform from t-matix with the goal, to provide customers with products that deliver the best efficiency and optimal cycle times.

Energetische Verwertung einer Feinfraktion aus der MBA durch pyrolytische Behandlung
© Lehrstuhl für Abfallverwertungstechnik und Abfallwirtschaft der Montanuniversität Leoben (11/2016)
Die Pyrolyse ist ein seit Jahrzehnten bekanntes thermochemisches Verfahren mit welchem aus organischen Ausgangsstoffen (fossilen oder biogenen Ursprungs) feste, flüssige und/oder gasförmige Energieträger erzeugt werden können. Je nach Betriebsführung des Prozesses kann die Ausbeute des bevorzugten Produkts gesteuert werden. Im gegenständlichen Projekt wird die Erzeugung eines flüssigen Produkts hoher Energiedichte angestrebt. Als Einsatzstoff wird die Feinfraktion (< 25 mm) aus einer mechanisch-biologischen Abfallbehandlungsanlage (MBA), welche nach einer Intensivrotte (biologische Stufe) der Deponierung zugeführt wird, hinsichtlich ihrer Eignung untersucht.

CO2 calculation tool for sustainable green waste management
© European Compost Network ECN e.V. (6/2014)
CO2 calculation tool for sustainable green waste management This presentation will outline key features of an innovative and practical CO2 calculation tool, which allows to quantify CO2-effects of green waste processing and of application of derived products. Unique about the tool is that it does not only calculate CO2-effects of energy applications (e.g. use of wood chips as fuel or), but also accounts for CO2-effects of material re-use, most notably compost products. Optionally, the tool can take into account CO2-effects of innovative, biobased products from green waste.

Mechanical Dewatering of Digestate - Necessity and Potential
