We’re continuously developing and refining our proprietary tools.

Deltaway has developed its own WTE power plant concept, called DeltaBox. DeltaBox is a modular, semi-permanent plant that can be barge-mounted, transported, and “plugged into” local power grids. It can be built on-site, or shipped or trucked to destinations at shorelines near or amid urban areas and sources of waste. Based on a 750-tonne-per-day waste throughput module, DeltaBox can also be linked to additional modules if needed, offering certain economies of scale.

DeltaBox’s core incineration system is identical to those used in many U.S. and European facilities and is known to be reliable and highly efficient for fuel consumption and environmental requirements. DeltaBox also incorporates the latest boiler; turbine-generator; and gas, fly ash, and slag collection technologies. At 750 tonnes per day, DeltaBox offers four primary advantages:

• Standardization of available off-the-shelf equipment,
• Optimized investment cost for target markets,
• A module size ideal for upscaling as needed, and
• Highly efficient energy output.

Because DeltaBox occupies a small land footprint or even can be anchored on water, it minimizes impact on limited land resources. Additionally, its built-in systems 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 such as Asia, where waste tipping fees are low and power purchase agreements are high-priced, DeltaBox can still operate profitably on power sales alone.

Combining vast amounts of fueling and electricity output data acquired with Deltaway’s successful performance-improvement solutions, we’ve created a simple internet-based tool called eDeltaway. eDeltaway allows continuous monitoring and modification of a customer’s plant control systems, taking real-time performance data from key points in a plant’s incineration and generation systems and analyzing it in real-time against target metrics. eDeltaway extrapolates trends from your plant’s data to identify areas for prompt performance improvement and fine-tuning.

As needed, customers can tailor eDeltaway to prioritize tracking of key systems, such as steam temperature, feed water pump temperature, and other data points. eDeltaway alerts you in real time when key systems underperform so you can immediately address shortcomings, rather than wait for lagging, incremental reports. Concurrently, eDeltaway updates data for daily, month-to-date, and year-to-date performance reports, which are available for reference at any time.

Deltaway’s LHV Tool helps you estimate the amount of energy in your waste stream
available to produce energy in an efficient waste-to-energy plant.

LHV stands for Low Heating Value, while HHV stands for High Heating Value, the
difference being in the energy contained in the water vapor created by the
combustion. This energy is typically not recovered.

Simply insert figures from your waste characterization study in the column labeled %
weight. The LHV Tool will automatically calculate the range of available energy
measured in two different units.

If you do not have a recent waste characterization study, or would like Deltaway to
create one for you, please contact us.
