Waste to Energy and Absorption Chiller: A Case Study
All measured performance characteristics corresponded well to manufacturer's specifications or were within the expected range for this type of incinerator. The simplified economic analysis showed a payback of period 4.5 years. An optimized payback calculation based on a set of possible improvements to the waste-to-energy system showed a payback period of 3.8 years.
