Project Scope

A recycling business which deals with municipal solid waste needs to find a solution to the government restrictions placed on how much waste they are allowed to commit to landfill.

To solve this problem, Novalux suggests a 15MWth Sugimat thermal oil boiler with 3.3MWe Turboden Organic Rankine Cycle which is able to burn the waste as fuel, for space heating and turn excess heat into power to be used on site or sold back to the grid through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).

Installing the system also means the business no longer has to pay to dispose of the RDF, contributing to large long-term financial benefits.

Project Financials

Novalux provides solutions to help reduce your company’s carbon footprint whilst enjoying a large return on investment.

Installing your own waste to energy system can help you make a sizeable long-term income stream for your business.
