In this paper a new process is described to improve the efficiency of power generation in waste incineration plants. It is proposed to superheat the steam in a gas turbine/waste heat boiler combination rather than in the incinerator boiler.

Although this is not discussed in this paper the same process may be applied in nuclear power stations where the superheating of steam is also a problem.

A global risk-analysis of the addition of equipment is made in this paper. On basis of a case-study the financial advantages are demonstrated.
