Kirkuk’s Governor, Abdulrahman Mostafa, met with representatives of a US consortium on Sunday, investing in the fields of petroleum, refineries, prefab construction and cell phones, and discussed with them a project to produce electricity through waste incineration, a local official said.
“The U.S. investors briefed the Kirkuk officials on the nature of their work and proposed an investment project for WtE power generation,” Delir Samad, Kirkuk’s information director, told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.
Waste-to-energy (WtE) or energy-from-waste (EfW) is the process of creating energy in the form of electricity or heat from the incineration of waste material. WtE is a form of energy recovery. Most WtE processes produce electricity directly through combustion, or produce a combustible fuel, such as methane, methanol, ethanol or synthetic fuels.
