Construction and operation of a large-scale incinerator (2 units, total nominal capacity of 265,200 t/year), co-generating electricity and heat, and a material recovery facility (MRF) (30,000 t/year), located at a brownfield site in the western suburbs of Warsaw
The incinerator should serve the larger Warsaw region, which generates more than 1,000,000 t/year of municipal solid waste (MSW), and aims to complete the different steps in the commonly applied waste-management hierarchy.

Proposed EIB finance (Approximate amount)
PLN 566 million (EUR 132 million)
Total cost (Approximate amount)
PLN 1133 million (EUR 264 million)
The waste incinerator was subject to a compulsory environmental impact assessment (EIA) procedure in compliance with the requirements of the EIA Directive 2011/92/EU. Environmental impact assessment, including public consultation, has been conducted and was approved by the relevant competent authority in 2009. The competent authority has concluded that the project's residual environmental impact is not likely to have a significant impact on environment, provided proposed mitigation measures are adhered to. The EIA also concluded that there will be no significant negative impact on sites of nature conservation.
The task of providing sufficient treatment capacity for municipal waste is entrusted with the local authorities. The city of Warsaw has awarded this task to its "in-house" company MPO Sp. z o.o.– the project promoter. The promoter falls into a category of contracting authorities and is obliged to comply with the national public procurement law which transposes Directive 2014/24/EU.
