Waste – a valuable fuel

Watch our video and hear the story of one of our customers. Around the world, waste generation rates are rising due to rapid population growth and urbanization. Poorly managed waste negatively impacts the entire planet instead of making use of this renewable energy source. Reliable and highly efficient equipment ensures an environmentally friendly and profitable Waste-to-Energy (WtE) process.

Turn challenges into oportunities

WtE is the best way to get rid of the garbage efficiently and environmentally friendly. With Siemens products for waste treatment the company aims to support a circular economy without landfilling unprocessed waste.

Solid waste – our daily routine

Solid waste is part of our daily lives. Garbage, agricultural waste, wood chips but also industrial waste usually are in a solid state. As a reliable partner Siemens offers customized power generation solutions. The steam turbine generator set utilizes energy most efficiently and reliable equipment offers a sustainable business model for plant operators.

Gaseous and liquid waste – Tap the potential

Gasification technology can be used to produce low-carbon fuels from municipal solid waste. The synthesis gas needs to be compressed to high pressures. Highly efficient DATUM compressors, driven by Siemens steam turbine, reduce the plant’s demand for electricity.
