Deltaway has developed its own WTE power plant concept, called DeltaBox. DeltaBox is a standardized plant suited to the specific needs of developing countries. It is reliable, simple, low capex, adapted to low-calorific-value waste and the low labor rate of developing countries, and operates at high energy efficiency to benefit from high power prices. Based on a standardized, 750-tonne-per-day waste throughput module, DeltaBox can also be linked to additional modules if needed, offering easy scalability.
DeltaBox’s basic incineration system is identical to those used in many European and U.S. facilities and is known to be reliable and compliant with international environmental requirements. DeltaBox incorporates best-available boiler; turbine-generator; and gas, fly ash, and slag collection technologies. It also meshes with the Company’s proprietary services, such as LiveKPI and other DeltawayData products (see below).
DeltaBox maximizes four key advantages:
• Standardization of available off-the-shelf equipment
• Optimized investment cost for target markets
• Highly efficient energy production
• A module size ideal for upscaling as needed
Because DeltaBox occupies a small footprint, it minimizes impact on limited land resources. It reduces the volume of waste going to landfill by 95 percent while producing renewable energy. Additionally, its built-in systems can desalinate seawater for steam and other plant needs, thereby reducing impact on scarce fresh water supplies. This makes it a particularly viable option in developing market population centers, the largest of which are coastal. In regions like Asia and Africa, where waste tipping fees are low and power purchase agreements are high-priced, DeltaBox can still operate profitably on power sales alone.
Furthermore, since it is standardized, it can be manufactured quickly and shipped to its destination with the benefit of global lowest-cost labor and volume pricing for equipment.
