Food company Pfanni GmbH & Co. OHG requires large volumes of steam and electrical energy to produce its potato products, and the Stavenhagen energy from waste plant was built to meet this need. Since August 2007, up to 150,000 tonnes of refuse derived fuel (RDF) have been recovered here each year in order to generate 71,000 MWh of steam for Pfanni. The electrical energy created as a by-product of the combined heat and power system meets the electricity demand of the entire production facility. The surplus power is fed into the grid of the regional energy company. The RDF comes primarily from the mechanical biological treatment (MBT) plant located just 12 kilometres away. Waste collected from the region is processed at the MBT plant into RDF, which is then delivered to the energy from waste facility, where it is recovered in a safe low-emission process.
