Is the energy produced from waste an important source of emissions into the air and toxic waste?
No. WTE plants today are modern and extremely advanced engineering equipment that can meet or exceed the stringent standards set out in the EU Directives. Should be noted that power generation plants, are considered by world environmental experts, to be superior in all aspects, compared to their disposal at the landfill, but mainly both in environmental and economic terms.
Avoiding emissions of methane gas causing greenhouse effect to the atmosphere. Gas around 25 times more dangerous.
Reduction up to 90% of the volume of waste that are being incinerated through the hygenic waste treatment method.
Minimizing the occupation of the land surface, unlike landfills that have a designated life and require lots of territory.
