Thermal Waste Treatment Plant Spittelau – New Construction to the Existing Plant –

The thermal waste treatment plant Spittelau is steeped in history and tradition. It is one out of four municipal solid waste incinerations plants in Vienna. The plant was built from 1969 until 1971 for the purpose of thermal utilization of municipal waste and household-type commercial waste as well as energy supply of the new General Hospital Vienna two kilometres away via district heating. The plant was equipped with two hot-water boilers to ensure heat supply at all times. Although it is located in the town-centre of Vienna its architectural structure did not differ significantly from the traditional plant structure.

After only six years the plant hadutilized one million tonnes of waste. Throughout the following years, pipelineconstruction over long distances intensified and by 1985 a closed circularpipeline for heating supply had been built around the entire inner city districtof Vienna. Among many others, the parliament, the Vienna Burgtheater and theVienna City Hall, were the first customers of the company Heizbetriebe Wien.The number of supplied buildings increased steadily and the technical plant wasfurther enlarged and adapted to the state-of-the-art. Until today, the pipelinesystem has been provided with hot water supply from waste incineration plantssuch as MVA Flötzersteig, SMVA Simmeringer Haide, MVA Pfaffenau, otherdecentralised plants (Arsenal, Kagran, Leopoldau, Inzersdorf) as well as thecogeneration of the larger KW-Simmering and KW-Donaustadt units.

Die Zukunft der Müllverbrennung in einer modernen Kreislaufwirtschaft
© Witzenhausen-Institut für Abfall, Umwelt und Energie GmbH (10/2021)
Aktuell werden 26,3 Millionen Tonnen Abfälle in 66 Müllverbrennungsanlagen (MVA) und 32 Ersatzbrennstoff(EBS)-Kraftwerken verbrannt. Nach konservativer Schätzung müssen bis 2030 etwa 50 der 66 MVA modernisiert werden.

Municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) is a solution adopted by several European countries to reduce the amount of waste landfilled.

Stand der Technik der deutschen Rostaschenaufbereitung aus der Abfallverbrennung im Fokus der Mineralik

Abfallverbrennung stellt in Deutschland die Regelentsorgung für Restabfälle dar. Während die Rückgewinnung von Metallen aus den Rostaschen nach dem Stand der Technik eine Rückgewinnung von 7,7 % Eisen und 1,3 % NE erreicht und damit gut erschlossen ist, gibt es Probleme bei der Verwertung der Mineralik.

Situation and Waste Management Strategy of the Czech Republic and Experience in Planning, Construction and Operation of WtE and SRF Plants
© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (12/2015)
Waste utilization has the potential of savings in using fossil fuels. In the Czech Republic, three incinerators of municipal waste are operating currently, there are many projects for implementation of others; unfortunately, they usually fail to succeed due to the economic evaluation. Support for the construction of new facilities for thermal treatment of waste is practically non-existent. Apparently, this could be solved through a number of alternative approaches – combined combustion, processing of sorted waste; however, a conceptual solution is still missing. The article aims to present the current situation and potential for the future.

Possibilities of Development of Municipal Waste Recycling and Incineration in Poland
© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (12/2015)
One of the basic rules in the field of waste management is the use of processes which are located as high as possible in the waste hierarchy, while taking into consideration the life cycle thinking. This also applies to municipal waste management. Waste prevention is at the top of the hierarchy. This is followed by: preparation for reuse, recycling and other recovery processes, including thermal treatment (incineration) of waste with energy recovery. The disposal of waste, which includes, among others, landfilling, is at the bottom of the hierarchy. Thus, the objective is to move up the hierarchy, which means moving away from waste disposal towards waste recovery.
