Michaelis helps to protect the sensitive ecological system of the Maldives. On the uninhabited island of Vandhoo in the Raa Atoll, Michaelis has installed a modern domestic waste treatment plant.
Household waste from surrounding islands and resorts is collected by special ships and brought to Vandhoo. There the household waste is separated and processed. The combustible part is converted into heat in the Michaelis furnace and the flue gas is cleaned according to European standards.
The plant is operated by a local company with the support of Michaelis.
