Climate-neutral energy generation based on forward-looking technology.

Generating more energy from waste - our energy from waste plants

Our energy from waste plants not only dispose of waste in an environmentally-friendly way – they also generate climate-neutral energy. That fits in with our target of continually enhancing energy efficiency in line with our motto of "Generating more energy from waste".
