Municipal Solid Waste (everyday rubbish from households or businesses) that would otherwise be buried in landfill is sent to a waste-to-energy plant where it is sorted and then typically incinerated to produce electricity via steam turbines. Other treatment processes include gasification and pyrolysis. Waste-to-energy plants are typically large and complex sites in terms of fire risk; see the Suez Isle of Man case study below for an example of the breadth of applications and attendant fire protection solutions.
