Review of steam and Stirling engines for energy from wastes systems. Final report

Technical Report:

Abstract

This study was commissioned on behalf of the United Kingdom Department of Energy (DEn), to provide a review of steam and Stirling engines for producing electricity from combustible industrial wastes in energy-from-wastes (EFW) schemes conducted under DEn programmes for energy recovery from general industrial and commercial wastes. Steam and Stirling engines also have applications in areas outside this programme, however, such as power generation and pumping at landfill sites, or as prime movers using gas produced from anaerobic digestion of organic wastes. This report focuses on the state-of-the art of these engines, their technical and financial viability for EFW systems, their potential UK market, and opportunities for research and development which could enhance their availability and improve their economics. The power range considered is 50 kw{sub e} to Imw{sub e} and includes combined heat and power systems. (author).
