Waste-to-Energy, Second Edition: Technologies and Project Implementation
Waste-to-Energy, Second Edition: Technologies and Project Implementation: The
authors cover in detail programs and technologies for converting traditionally landfilled solid wastes into
energy through waste-to-energy projects. Modern Waste-to-Energy (WTE) plants are being built around the world
to reduce the levels of solid waste going into landfill sites and contribute to renewable energy and carbon
reduction targets. The latest technologies have also reduced the pollution levels seen from early waste
incineration plants by over 99%.
With case studies from around the world, Rogoff and Screve provide an insight into the different approaches
taken to the planning and implementation of WTE. The second edition includes coverage of the latest technologies
and practical engineering challenges as well as an exploration of the economic and regulatory context for the
development of WTE.
Authors: Marc J Rogoff has held a number of senior positions in the Solid Waste Association of
North America (SWANA) and the American Public Works Association. Following on from his BS and MS at Cornell
University, Marc completed a PhD at Michigan State University and an MBA at the University of Tampa. His career has
embraced all aspects of solid waste management, and he has directed engineer's feasibility reports for nearly two
dozen public works projects, totaling $1.2bn in project financing. His name is well known in the field of
Waste-to-Energy, where his consultancy work has covered feasibility studies on more than 50 facilities worldwide,
operations assessments, and advising on key procurement decisions.Francois Screve is the founder of Deltaway
Energy, Inc, San Francisco. He has 20 years experience in the municipal sold waste-to-energy plant design and
operation field with six years in Europe, 12 years in the USA, and two years in Asia. Francois holds mechanical
engineering and MBA degrees, as well as a WTE chief operator certificate from the ASME/EPA in the USA. He managed
the Long Beach Steinmuller 1,400 TPD waste-to-energy facility in California. He was responsible for the operation
of the 4,200 TPD refuse-derived fuel facility of Miami-Dade County, Florida, one of the largest facilities in the
world. He was vice president for Onyx, a subsidiary of Vivendi Environnement, overseeing the operation of eight
facilities and the design of three new plants in Asia.
