Abstract: SO2 and HCl emission data from a large-scale Waste-to-Energy (WtE) plant are analysed as a function of combustion process parameters. Basic principles of flow, mass transfer and reactor engineering are applied to the waste layers on the grates in order to explain the obtained results. Strong similarity with fixed bed reactor systems is observed. The findings from this study contribute to the understanding of mechanisms of S and Cl release from waste in WtE processes, and support developments in areas of emissions reduction and corrosion abatement in WtE plants. To the authors’ knowledge, such extensive analysis has never been performed before on the industrial scale of WtE.
