Waste Pre-Processing



The first step in the GPEC Waste-to-Energy system is pre-processing the Municipal Solid Waste (MSW).   Metal and glass and some plastics are removed for recycling.  Next the remaining MSW waste stream, made up of organics, wood, paper, and plastic, is shredded.  The resulting refuse derived fuel is a uniform-sized blend which aids the gasification process.  A small buffer of shredded MSW is kept to ensure that the gasification units have a steady supply.
