Energy from waste
After an initial sorting cycle, non-reusable domestic waste and mixed industrial waste is incinerated in a waste-to-energy plant. This incineration produces energy that can be used immediately to heat dwellings and businesses.
Incineration prevents non-reusable waste from being sent to landfill, and allows for the production of energy (electricity and heat) that can be used immediately in dwellings and businesses. The ash that remains after incineration is called Incinerator Bottom Ash (IBA) and we reprocess this for further use.
