EEW Energy from Waste Helmstedt.
The Helmstedt site boasts a long tradition in power generation; brown coal was an important fuel in the Helmstedt mining region. It's been used for over a century to generate electricity. An additional power plant that uses fuel waste for energy recovery has been added since 1998. In the immediate vicinity of the EEW Energy from Waste plant in Helmstedt (EEW Helmstedt), the thermal residual-waste treatment plant in Buschhaus (TRV Buschhaus) annually generates around 290,000 megawatts of electricity. The latter can thereby meet the electricity needs of over 84,000 households.
This energy from waste plant is among the largest in Germany. It guarantees supply security to eight neighbouring districts. Commercial and private partners can also bring their residual materials to the EEW plant. A railway connection and good connection to the A2 federal motorway enable prompt, unimpeded delivery.
