EEW Energy from Waste GmbH

Each year, Europe generates around 160 million tons of waste. A large ratio of this waste is already thermally recycled and energetically used in Germany, but more than 90 million tons are disposed of in landfills in the rest of the European Union. As a leading company in the generation of power and heat from thermal waste recycling and disposal, we work daily towards seeing the antiquated model of waste landfills soon becoming obsolete across Europe.
