dcsimg Waste-to-energy - Ramboll UK Limited


Waste-to-energy is one of the cornerstones of any efficient waste management system and a way to secure energy supplies for the future. Waste is turned into climate friendly energy for the benefit of both people and the environment.

A waste-to-energy facility may generate a range of outputs: electricity, district heating, steam for industrial processes, desalinated seawater or even district cooling. In this way, residual waste that cannot be recycled in an economic or environmentally beneficial way becomes a valuable local source of energy. Additionally, in most configurations, waste-to-energy facilities outperform alternative waste treatment processes in terms of their carbon footprint and other impacts on the environment.
