Experience an EfW facility virtual tour (without the smell)
Teachers and students were not aware of the self-sustaining facility located minutes from their school nor how little pollution was produced in the process of creating energy from waste.
EfW generates clean, renewable energy, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and supports recycling through the recovery of metals.
