About Us

Environmental Energy & Finance Corporation (EEFC) is a Developer/Owner of Renewable Energy Projects. Along with its partners, EEFC provides expert solutions in mini hydro electric, wind, solar, Waste to Energy (WTE) and Waste to Fuel for power generation and electrical transmission and distribution Systems and specialize in the development of MSW and RDF processing.
 

Process of Converting Waste to Energy

Generally, WTE facilities can be divided into two process types: mass burn and refuse-derived fuel (RDF). Mass burn facilities process raw waste that has not been shredded, sized, or separated before combustion, although large items such as appliances and hazardous waste materials and batteries are removed before combustion. In mass burn systems, untreated MSW is simply burned, with the heat produced converted into steam, which can then be passed through a steam turbine to generate electricity or used directly to supply heat to nearby industries or buildings.
RDF is a result of processing MSW to separate the combustible fraction from the noncombustible’s, such as metals and glass. RDF is mainly composed of paper, plastic, wood, and kitchen or yard wastes, and has higher energy content than untreated MSW. Like MSW, RDF is then burned to produce steam and/or electricity. A benefit of using RDF is that it can be shredded into uniformly sized particles or compressed into briquettes, both of which facilitate handling, transportation, and combustion. Another benefit of RDF rather than raw MSW is that fewer noncombustibles such as heavy metals are burned.
 

    MSW

    The emergence of mega-cities worldwide produces new challenges to process the high volumes of MSW: it needs to be transported, treated and to be recycled. EEFC offers complete, efficient and simple solutions for all MSW challenges for transfer stations, landfill sites and material recovery facilities.

    Waste to energy (WTE) is the term used to describe the conversion of waste by-products into useful steam or steam-generated electricity. Typically, WTE is produced by converting municipal solid waste (MSW) shown above, which is defined as residential and commercial refuse, and makes up the largest source of waste in industrialized countries.

    Recently, however, the definition of waste has been expanded from MSW to include wastes such as wood, wood waste, peat, wood sludge, agricultural waste, straw, tires, landfill gases, fish oils, paper industry liquors, railroad ties, and utility poles. EEFC provides a wide range of Technologies that are “best in class” that will produce electricity, steam, heat, fuel, and biofuels. EEFC’s Finance Department has developed a network of Companies that specializes in Project Funding of large Infrastructure, and Renewable Energy Projects  plus provides 100% Debt Financing.
     

    RDF

    Refuse Derived Fuel has become a cost effective fuel of choice for cement kilns, power plants, etc. RDF can be processed from wet and dry MSW. EEFC offers suppliers of RDF technology that can adapt to any type of waste.
