Energy and Materials from Waste

In the past decades there have been two exponentially growing concerns, both in the developed and the developing world. On the one hand, there is waste and its management; our consumption-driven lifestyle produces more and more waste, leading to environmental and sanitary issues. On the other hand, there is a growing energy demand around the world, and an increasing desire for this energy to be sustainable.

How can waste management and sustainable growth objectives be combined? ESWET believes that Waste-to-Energy (WtE) could offer solution to both – and other concerns.

ESWET welcomes the R1 Climate Correction Factor

Several years in the making, this factor recently adopted by the European Commission will take into account local climatic conditions and their influence on Waste-to-Energy plants' ability to use and export heat. The possibility to use heat for instance in District Heating systems significantly influences the resulting R1 value a plant can feature.
