Safety is achieved when the unpredictable is planned. At EEW Energy from Waste, material flow management ensures an intelligent distribution of waste around the system network. This model enables EEW to rapidly respond to unforeseen situations such as plant failures, but also to planned revisions. An interactive database depicts availability and also the quantity situation in the EEW Energy from Waste plant, and as a consequence both tolerances and overloads become tangible, enabling specific handling. In such situations, EEW material flow management routes quantities from specific contracts to the next nearest plant to ensure customers important disposal safety.
