Waste to Energy Recovery

Energy recovery from waste is the conversion of non-recyclable waste materials into useable heat, electricity, or fuel through a variety of processes. This process is often called waste-to-energy (WTE). WTE recovery (or WTE incineration) is often falsely labelled as recycling and considered a green solution for waste management, However, producing goods from virgin, finite resources requires a significant amount of energy, and burning them in an incinerator destroys those resources for good.Waste prevention, re-use and recycling are still preferred (see definition for incineration).
