How does it work

Burning the waste at a temperature above 1000°C,  the TRM waste to energy plant recover the waste energy, producing electricity and thermal energy (hot water) for district heating.

The plant can generate only electricity or, in cogeneration mode, it can produce both electricity and thermal energy. In electric mode, the waste to energy plant produces energy equivalent to the yearly demand of about 175,000 families formed of three people; in cogeneration mode, each year it produces thermal energy capable of heating 17,000 homes of 100 m2 and electricity capable of meeting the demand of around 160,000 families.

The energy recovery allows a saving of 70,000 tons of fossil-fuel per year, contributing to protection of the environment and generation of a sustainable economy.
