EEW Energy from waste Delfzijl operates a thermal waste recycling plant for preparing commercial and household wastes as well as alternative fuels in the immediate vicinity of the Wattenmeer nature park.
The site in Delfzijl's Oosterhorn industrial park in the Dutch province of Groningen offers EEW Delfzijl several advantages. For one thing, the site can exploit the existing infrastructure—the waste can be delivered via ship, railway, or lorry. For another, supply routes for process steam to neighbouring industrial plants are especially short. The industrial partners thus draw economical, reliable, environmentally friendly energy directly from the Delfzijl site.
Alternate fuels (EBS) are a specially treated form of commercial and industrial wastes having a considerably higher calorific value than traditional household waste.
The plant began operation in 2010 with two incineration lines. They can thermally exploit up to 384 000 tons of waste annually.
