Japan MSW incinerator upgrade to improve waste heat use

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Environmental & Chemical Engineering Co, Ltd (MHIEC) has received an order from Mihara City, Hiroshima Prefecture, in Japan, to refurbish the core equipment of its municipal solid waste (MSW) incineration plant (pictured).

The modification work calls for revamping of two stoker-type incinerators with a capacity of 120 tonnes a day. Slated for completion in March 2017, the refurbishing work will include improved waste heat utilisation and adoption of high-efficiency motors in various equipment that, together with other improvements, will enable a greater than 3% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions per year, the company says.

The Mihara MSW Incineration Plant was constructed by MHI and completed in March 1999.
