    Rayong pushes for 10MW waste-to-energy plant ahead of EEC growth

    Rayong’s administration is working on putting in place an effective waste and waste-water disposal system before the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) is fully developed and brings in an influx of people.


    Piya Pitutecha, chief of Rayong’s Provincial Administrative Organisation, said his team was working in collaboration with PTT’s Global Power Synergy Co (GPSC) to build a comprehensive waste-disposal centre, which will cover approximately 429 rai and overlap Nam Khok, Thapma, Map Kha and Nong Taphan subdistricts. He said a proper waste-disposal set up was necessary as the EEC will soon start attracting both industrial and business investments, which will result in a boost in population and huge amounts of waste.

    The planned integrated waste-disposal centre will comprise waste-separation plants, which will then be shifted to power-generating incinerators that can eliminate 500 tonnes of waste daily and produce 10 megawatts of electricity.

    Construction of this plant began last year and is scheduled to be completed in 2021.

    Maybe not according to this - Waste Calculator - Covanta

    500 tonnes could produce 275 MWh so that’s at a rate of about 11.5 MW if the plant runs 24 hours a day.
    11.5 MW is roughly the equivalent of 10 Thai MW.

    You know more than me. I'm kind of ..blank

    Has one here,but.. in danish

    Naestved Affaldsenergi | AffaldPlus
    130000 tons of garbage a year

    Output is 13MW and 50 MW water for heating

    They have Smoke Condensing

    According to the calculator quoted above 130000 kt of waste a year should produce electricity at the rate of about 8.2 MW running 24/7.
    Assuming electricity production is 50 % efficient that would represent about 16.4 MW of hot water.
    So if your facility is producing at the equivalent rate of 28 MW of electricity it is either much more efficient or only running 7 hours a day.
    Presumably waste conversion efficiency is also very dependent on what materials are being burned.
