EEW Energy from Waste Premnitz.
The small town of Premnitz lies in the Havelland nature park directly on the lower Havel lowland's river landscape. Broad landscapes, deep forests, and quiet lakes offer an pleasant quality of life. At the same time Premnitz is a city full of energy. The recently established industrial park is a prime example of that. Local energy generation and needs go hand in hand here.
Thus one of the most modern plants in the last decade originated here for the energy-related exploitation of alternative fuels (EBS) in Germany. EEW Energy from Waste Premnitz planned, constructed, and operates this plant to generate environmentally friendly electricity and steam from 270,000 tons of combustible material. Neighbouring businesses in Premnitz's industrial and commercial park are supplied with this generated energy.
Alternative fuels (EBS) are a specially treated form of commercial and industrial wastes that have a considerably higher caloric value than traditional household waste.
