There are many videos on the internet, explaining Waste-to-Energy succinctly. Many are in different languages and made by different plants, but all share the same story: WtE contributes to the community, both in waste management and energy production, and is complementary to the circular economy, assisting in the recycling of, for example, metals.

We have gathered a few below (and in our youtube playlist):
