ESWET Site Visit
Waste-to-Energy Plant Visit
Tuesday, 24th of May 2016, from 09:30 to 13:30
ESWET would like to thank all participants for joining us in the guided visit of the Indaver plant in Beveren (Antwerp), dedicated to the thermal treatment of unrecyclable waste.
As all other plants in the EU, the plant is fitted with Best Available Techniques for waste incineration. Participants were able to observe the complete process: the delivery of waste to the plant, the incineration process, the energy recovery in the boiler and its use as electricity and heat, the flue gas cleaning system minimising air emissions and the recovery of metals from the bottom ash.
Waste-to-Energy is an essential part of the Circular Economy. Without it, it is currently impossible to fully recover the value of unrecyclable waste.
