    Krakow waste-to-energy plant successfully starts operation

    Doosan Lentjes is pleased to announce that the new Krakow waste-to-energy plant has received a permit of operation from the local Polish government and is now in a position to begin its operation. Once the commissioning phase is completed, the plant will thermally treat the waste of more than 750,000 residents from the greater Krakow area, while simultaneously reducing the need for landfill ― a milestone which meets the stringent EU emission directives requiring a thermal treatment of all generated municipal solid waste. Maximising resource efficiency by recovering materials and energy from the incineration process helps compliance with the European aspiration to increase efforts to share a sustainable circular economy.

    Doosan Lentjes supplied a complete boiler system consisting of two incineration lines applying a proven reciprocating grate that is capable of processing about 220,000 tonnes of household waste per year while producing electrical power and district heat; significantly contributing to reducing the negative climate impact of greenhouse gas emission from landfills.

    Commenting on the project, Gerhard Lohe, Director of the Waste-to-Energy product line at Doosan Lentjes, said: “This current waste-to-energy project marks an important milestone in both the establishment of an all-encompassing waste management infrastructure in Poland and the governmental aspiration to ensure a sustainable thermal treatment of all municipal solid waste. With both the targeted delivery of our products and processes as well as the close cooperation with the EPC contractor and the final customer we have proven our efforts to make a positive contribution to this development – now and in future.”

    Doosan Lentjes is a specialist in the delivery of proven and reliable waste-to-energy technology, converting millions of tonnes of waste into valuable energy every year. This helps customers all over the world reduce their waste volumes and simultaneously provide a sustainable energy source.
