Industrial Filtration for the Waste to Energy Industry

Energy recovery from waste is the conversion of non-recyclable waste materials into useable heat, electricity, or fuel through a variety of processes. This process is often called waste-to-energy (WTE) or energy-from-waste (EFW).

Energy recovery from waste is part of the non-hazardous waste management hierarchy. Converting non-recyclable waste materials into electricity and heat generates a renewable energy source and reduces carbon emissions by offsetting the need for energy from fossil sources and reduces methane generation from landfills.

These type of plants are subjected to close environmental scrutiny because they are located in heavily populated areas, with neighbors that closely monitor the effectiveness of the filtration and scrubbing process. National Filter Media, a recognized worldwide leader in baghouse and dust collector filters, installation, parts and services, has proven products and services that can handle the common and site specific problems such as:

  • Premature baghouse filter failures
  • High pressure drop or drag resistance
  • Emissions
  • Hopper or silo bridging & buildup
  • Heavy corrosion of baghouse floors & walls
  • Reverse air/pulse jet systems
  • Corroded cages
