Energy from WasteZeichen setzen.

Energy is essential to everyday life. At EEW, we take on responsibility for energy.

For our environment and future generations.

With our business activities – environmentally friendly energy generation through thermal waste recovery – we are truly at the source. Waste is a valuable resource in a modern circular economy and can be used for companies, local authorities and people in the region.

We rise to the challenges and operate amidst constantly shifting underlying conditions, such as economic and environmental change, the transition to renewable energy and heat, and the limited availability of resources. At EEW, we attempt through our daily conduct to make a positive contribution for the environment, society and our company.
