Twinning For Promoting Excellence, Ability and Knowledge to Develop Advanced Waste Gasification Solutions

Short Introductive summary

Lithuania is slowly stepping forward towards economic, technological and sustainable development in the field of Waste-to-Energy (WtE) as well as Power-to-X (PtE), especially processing of waste into alternative renewable fuels and hydrogen. This will be mostly done by sorting at Mechanical and Biological waste treatment plants and municipal solid waste incineration plants. Waste (municipal solid waste (MSW), refuse derived fuels (RDF), solid recovered fuels (SRF), various types of biomass), not suitable for recycling or recovering but still having energetic value, can be successfully utilised for energy, fuels or chemicals production via thermochemical pathway. So far, two MSW incineration plants have been in operation in Lithuania (in Klaipeda and Kaunas). One more MSW incineration plant is under commissioning in Vilnius. Therefore, some highly qualified specialists and engineers will be required to maintain their operation. Moreover, new more advanced thermochemical conversion technologies, e.g. plasma gasification, has to be developed in order to manage waste in a more sustainable way instead of direct waste incineration. Additionally, the PtX concept should be enhan
