Transvit - Waste-to-Energy (WTE) Plants
From Phase 1
A waste-to-energy (WTE) plant is constructed in TWO (2) Phases: Phase 1 is elimination of the waste by gasification (incineration). This Phase 1 represents 10% to 15% of the full Waste-to-Energy plant cost. With normal tipping fees it is quickly paid for and profitable. Phase 2 is the energy recovery and electricity generation, and this can be constructed at any later time. This at 85 to 90% of the cost of the full WTE is more easily justified after Phase 1 is operational.
When the waste elimination is the most critical and the most important issue for the city, this two phased construction may be financially and practically advantageous. The Phase 2 can be added any time later, when it is more easily afforded and justified.
In addition the initial Phase 1 portion can be fabricated locally, saving construction and shipping costs and providing local employment.
