Process optimization of Waste to Energy plants (WtE plants) is of particular interest because control performance is crucial for the profitability of the overall operation of the plant.

WtE plants represent very large investments and an optimal efficiency in operation is crucial for the return of the investment. Process optimization including optimal control of the abnormal operating situations when the waste quality is out of the normal range is thus very attractive in order to increase the profitability and efficiency of the waste incineration operations.

This presentation will describe how high-level control based on expert system can be used in a practical and convenient way to provide a more efficient operation of a WtE plant and provide a capacity increase of 3–6% or more and thereby be a very attractive investment for an existing or new WtE plant operator.
