The Provincial Waste Management plan, drawn up by Cagliari’s Provincial Authorities envisages for the Sulcis Iglesiente region (Subambito A2) the construction of a waste incinerator for disposing of the 43,775 tonnes of refuse generated each year in the catchment area. Sotacarbo, Sondel and Austrian Energy and Environment AG have completed a joint project for the design of a waste to-energy facility with a 12 MWe installed electric generating capacity. The plant is based on the technology developed by Austrian Energy and Environment AG for co-firing Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) and coal in a circulating fluidized bed (CFB). The project was financed by the European Commission within the Thermie Program and the facility designed in compliance with Italian emission standards and the indications prescribed in the MSW management plans drawn up by the Sardinia Government and the Provincial Authorities of Cagliari. The proposed plant is intended to contribute effectively to solving the problem of waste disposal in the Sulcis-Iglesiente area, burning coal and producing low CO2 emissions.
