The WTE facility receives around 550,000 to 560,000 tons of residential and commercial garbage per year and produces 59.7 megawatts (MW) of electricity per hour. Fifteen percent of the electricity is used to power the campus, while the rest is sold on the open market.
Attendees will have the opportunity to see how the WTE facility and recycling facilities work together as a community resource to create revenue, reduce the community’s carbon footprint and greatly reduce material going to landfill.
The tour is Oct. 5 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and is sponsored by Covanta, Morristown, New Jersey. Visit www.REWConference.com to learn more about the event.
