Waste to Energy – Don’t simply dump your waste
For those who don’t know, I do run studio rental White Studio Project and one of the thing that we offer is bar. We do provide beverage can, bottle, etc. So, most of the time our customer will simply throw their waste in our dustbin.
Waste-to-energy (WtE) or energy-from-waste (EfW) is the process of generating energy in the form of electricity and/or heat from the primary treatment of waste. WtE is a form of energy recovery. Most WtE processes produce electricity and/or heat directly through combustion, or produce a combustible fuel commodity, such as methane, methanol, ethanol or synthetic fuels.
For those who might don’t aware yet, Malaysia already has numerous waste-to-energy (WTE) facility to process solid waste and generate electricity. How cool is that?
I always told my colleague that it is important to split the waste before we throw it to the disposal area. Most of the time, I will give waste that can be recycle such as paper and bottle to the cleaner so that they can make some extra cash.
