Incineration is a technology used for the treatment of waste products by combusting the organic substances present in it. Waste materials combusted in this process are converted into residual ash, fly gas (from incombustible materials), and heat. Incinerators are great waste management tools and the heat produced during the process is further used in the generation of electricity. To ensure safe and efficient operations, the furnace used during the combustion process is automatically monitored and controlled. Incinerators help curb down the solid mass of waste by almost 80-85% and the total volume by 95-96% which substantially reduces the requisite volume of disposal. Various types of incinerators that are currently available in the market include rotary kiln, fluidized bed, liquid injection, multiple hearths, catalytic combustion, waste gas flare, direct-flame, etc. Incinerators are mostly used for the management of chemical wastes, medical wastes, sewage incineration, agricultural wastes, building and municipality wastes, etc. Apart from this, thermal incinerators are used to reduce the waste from rector vents, distillation vents, solvent operations, and operations conducted in ovens and dryers.
Catalyzed by better waste management and the ability to handle a large quantity of the total waste generated in urban areas, the demand of various types of incinerators is undergoing strong growth. Moreover, the demand of incinerators is also being driven by a decline in the availability of landfills and the ability of incinerators to deal with artificial and non-organic waste. Additionally, incinerators keep a check on the rising levels of soil pollution, thereby minimizing the hazardous effects of untreated waste on the environment. Moreover, facilities carrying out the incineration process can be located close to the center of gravity of waste generation, as a result reducing the cost of waste transportation. Other factors that are currently driving this market include production of energy as a byproduct, uncontaminated groundwater, low carbon footprint, lower land requirements, etc.
