Is an ERF just another name for an incinerator?

A modern ERF is a power plant using a thermal treatment process to generate electricity and heat. Direct combustion remains the most widely used thermal treatment process and uses sophisticated combustion control mechanisms to achieve a clean burn and convert waste into heat and power. Incineration on the other hand does not involve any energy recovery and is just another means of disposing of waste.
