Abstract [en]

The purpose of this feasibility study has been to investigate different conditions necessary when building a solid waste incineration plant with power generation in Wuhan, China. The conditions have been divided into four different main topics; situation in Wuhan, technology, law system, and economics. The section of the situation of Wuhan deals with the three different types of solid waste; municipal, industrial and hazardous waste. This section also identifies the climate of Wuhan and how the population copes with cold winters and hot summers. The section of technology briefly gives an overview of an incineration plant with power generation then explores the potentials of district heating and district cooling in Wuhan. The section on the law system first gives a clear understanding the laws in Sweden that apply to waste management and waste incineration. The same is done with the law system for China. After this a comparison is done to underline similarities and differences in the law systems. The last section is on the economics of waste showing how much waste collection, transport and handling cost, the price of electricity and the cost of wages for the personnel at an incineration plant.
