Local authorities in the European Union are obliged under the Landfill Directive to divert biodegradable waste from landfill.
As a result it is necessary to find sustainable methods of treating non-recyclable municipal waste. It can be difficult to accurately forecast the waste treatment capacity requirements over a long period of time, however, the modular design of ENERGOS plants can help local authorities to overcome this problem. Their modularity means that sufficient capacity can be installed for the medium term and additional capacity can be added at a later date, if and when required.
The renewable heat and power supplied by an ENERGOS plant to local industry and businesses provides an attractive platform for inward investment. In particular the supply of renewable heat (in the form of hot water and/or steam) can help insulate local industry from rising wholesale oil and gas prices. This helps local businesses to maintain a competitive position and secure jobs.
