The Corona Virus Pandemic has made it more difficult to invest in large WTE capital projects. To make it affordable TVI is offering a Two Phased approach.
1. PHASE 1 is the elimination of the waste by gasification (incineration). This 200 TPD Phase 1 represents 10% to 15% of the full WTE plant cost. With normal tipping fees it is quickly paid for and profitable.
2. PHASE 2 is energy recovery or electricity generation, and it can be constructed at any time following Phase 1. This power generation is 85 to 90% of the cost of the full WTE plant. Phase 2, up to 400 TPD/8 MW, is more easily justified after Phase 1 is operational, and when the value of recovered energy is established.
Where garbage cleanup is a health and environmental issue, this two phased construction may be both financially and practically advantageous. The electricity generation, or Phase 2, can be added at any time later, when it is more easily afforded.
In addition, most of Phase 1 can be fabricated locally, saving construction and shipping costs and providing local employment.
Waste clean up following Natural Disasters such as hurricanes, floods, or oil spills may also benefit from a rapid and affordable Phase 1 installation.
