Waste-to-energy (WtE) plants and energy-from-waste (EfW) facilities can transform non-recyclable waste into energy, so that we can extract the very last resources from it. Optimally shredded waste provides the continuous material flow that is needed for stable and efficient combustion.
Waste is a stable and profitable energy source. Material that has been used and disposed of can be turned into energy-efficient fuel to replace or complement other sources of energy in various applications.
Recycling valuable materials from municipal solid waste and industrial waste is crucial to the success of the green transition. Sorting becomes much faster when the waste is of the right size and shape for screening and separation.
Mechanical biological treatment plants use municipal solid waste, commercial waste and industrial waste as raw material. Waste is screened and sorted, and all valuable materials are recovered or used in energy production.
Cement production is an extremely energy-intensive process that emits approx. 8% of the world’s CO2. There are huge economic and environmental benefits to be made by replacing fossil fuels with alternative fuels made from waste.
The current use of landfills in many parts of the world comes at a gigantic environmental cost and is a burden to nature, people and the climate. Fortunately, however, there are good opportunities for getting rid of the piles.
