Construction of a waste-to-energy plant that will produce electricity and heat for the municipality of Olsztyn. The process of including the plant in the Waste Management Programme for Mazursko-Warminskie Voivodship is ongoing.
The project will ensure reliable heat supply to the district heating network, contribute to the security of supply in electricity and, due to the use of waste, will increase the diversification of the power sector. Furthermore, the project aims to achieve the objectives of the Landfill Directive (1999/31/EC) and the Waste Framework Directive (2008/98/EC), namely by contributing to the diversion of biodegradable waste from landfills. The project will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions by reducing methane emissions from landfills and by generating heat and electricity from a partly renewable energy source. It is located in a region eligible for funding from the Cohesion Fund as defined by the Commission Implementing Decision 2014/99/EU.
