Water is an extremely precious, and often scarce or hard-to-reach, resource in many parts of the world. The WOIMAdesign ensures that as little water as possible is wasted in the wasteWOIMA® WtE plant mainly thanks to the closed steam-water –cycle. Unfortunately, it is still inevitable that some water (~500-600 l/h) is required to replenish the plant due to evaporation and water quality degradation.

All the water in the wasteWOIMA® plant is recycled as

  • Process water
  • Cooling water for equipment
  • Cooling water for ashes

The wasteWOIMA® plant can utilize water from several different sources

  • Town water main
  • River, lake or sea water
  • Bore hole water
  • Tanker-delivered water

Combined, these WOIMAbenefits can save up to 400,000€ during the WtE plant lifespan in operation and maintenance.
