Waste-to-fuel History and Implementation in the Republic of Korea
Understanding waste-to-fuel technologies begin with becoming familiar with the different organic waste treatment such as anaerobic digestion, composting and incineration, among others. As mentioned in earlier presentations, waste-to-fuel technologies proliferated in Sweden, Germany and France. In the Republic of Korea, research into these technologies started in 1997 and soon converting waste into energy spread across various regions, with Wonju being one of the notable cases. This presentation also focuses on the history and operations of the organic waste-to-resource project in Wonju. Learn what prompted Wonju to tap into this renewable energy and what are the intended outcomes of this 20-year endeavor.
