Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The suitability of incineration for agro-industrial wastes was experimentally evaluated by burning in a pilot plant residual biomass such as exhausted olive residues, dried grape peel, grape-stalks, and organic sludges from distillery waters. The energy recovery was considered, as well as the emission of several macro- and micropollutants, including PCDD and PCDF. The emissions produced by burning urban waste, agro-industrial wastes and wood in the same plant are compared.
