The Wadden Sea National Parks area is a habitat deserving of special protection. It is therefore important that the factories located here in the Delfzijl industrial park, in the Dutch province of Groningen, have a suitable and environmentally compatible supply of energy. EEW’s energy from waste plant has been performing this task since 2010. The plant currently generates 219,000 megawatt hours of electricity, 710,000 megawatt hours of process steam and 7,000 megawatt hours of district heating, thereby meeting the needs of nearby companies without requiring long transport routes. 576,000 tonnes of industrial and municipal waste as well as refuse derived fuels are delivered by sea, rail or road via existing infrastructure. Our site provides reliable waste management capacity for the surrounding districts and converts waste into energy in a safe, low-emission process.
In view of the current situation with regard to the corona virus (SARS-CoV-2), until further notice there will be no tours for visitor groups at the EEW locations in Germany, Luxembourg and The Netherlands. This is purely a precautionary measure in the interests of our employees and visitors.
Up-to-date information on the corona virus (SARS-CoV-2) with instructions for visitors and customers at the EEW locations in Germany, Luxembourg and The Netherlands can be found here.
