Waste to Energy Processes

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Susanne Rotter
Lecture Waste to Energy
Lehrveranstaltung 0333 L 540

course language: english


  • Status of Waste to Energy in Waste Management 
  • Physicochemical principles of incineration, drying, pyrolysis, and Gasification 
  • Process and operational Units description of thermal Treatment. 
  • Emissions Control, flue gas cleaning and residues treatment. 
  • Supplementary Fuels Production from Waste 
  • Energy use and co-incineration in industry
Exercise Waste energy utilization 
Lehrveranstaltung 0333 L541

course language: english


By using the potential energy in waste, waste management in Germany contributes to climate and resource protection. Waste-to-Energy also includes energy recovery of substitute fuels, biogas, biomass and landfill gas. In this exercise, basic principles are laid down for the interpretation and evaluation of energetic exploitation measures::
  • Incineration calculations
  • Water liquid-vapor cycles
  • Energy Balances 
  • CO2-Balances for the assessment of Climate Change
  • Profitability analysis for waste-to-energy projects
Course material and schedule are available on ISIS
