Abstract:The target for CO2 neutral electricity production for 2050 is an important step by the Netherlands to fight global warming. This will have a major impact on the current electricity production sectors that have to find innovative alternatives. One of those sectors is waste to electricity through incineration of flammable waste. Within this research, the aim is to analyze two alternative approaches for processing flammable household waste, which is currently incinerated in Friesland. The two approaches are slow & fast pyrolysis and will be analyzed based on their environmental and product value. The structure of this report begins with a short introduction regarding the topic, research questions and overview of the methodology. Secondly, the current household waste composition that is incinerated is determined and approximated. Thirdly, the incinerator, slow and fast pyrolysis are in depth analyzed, based on their current market value and emission concentrations. Thereafter, the data is compared to each other, based on global warming, environmental effects and the product value. Finally, the results are concluded in a clear overview and recommendations are made.
