Thai environmental and energy situation
Thailand’s economic growth has triggered an increase in the amount of solid waste generated and problems such as open-air landfilling and illegal dumping. The government is promoting reforms in solid waste management and a shift torenewable energy. Carried out as a part of these efforts, the project seeks to create a “sound material cycle”in Thailand. The Energy-from-Waste plant will enable safe, hygienic incineration of waste that was previously sent to landfill, and with a power generating capacity of 7,900kilowatts,meet the rising demand for energy.
