The wasteWOIMA® WtE plant has been designed for a decentralized waste management and power generation program, where local waste is incinerated to energy locally for local people and businesses. Naturally, the decentralized business model only works for cities/areas large enough to generate enough waste for one large or at least five small-scale wasteWOIMA® plants.


The wasteWOIMA® plant saves on average 30% of the transportation costs due to shorter transportation routes. The savings are attributable to

  • Smaller garbage truck fleet
  • Lower fleet administration costs
  • Less transportation fuel consumption
  • Less personnel costs
  • Less vehicle maintenance and insurance costs

Some additional benefits of the decentralized solution include

  • Lower transportation carbon footprint
  • Reduced power transmission losses
  • Increased waste collection and recycling rates

Combined, these WOIMAbenefits can save up to 3,000,000€ during the WtE plant lifespan in operation and maintenance.
