Amsterdam – Netherlands
1917 – 2019 112 years of WtE in Amsterdam – 4 generations

Amsterdam has become a leader in developing waste management services, regulation and technologies. Today Amsterdam ranks in the top 3 of global clean and sustainable cities.

The technology development by the municipality of Amsterdam has resulted in the most efficient and cleanest Waste to Energy facility in the world. In Amsterdam we have over 100 years’ experience in waste to energy during which 4 generations of WtE technology have been engineered and implemented. The latest generation, the 4thgeneration is widely acknowledged as “beyond Best Available Technology”, and produces more electricity from waste than any other incineration technology for waste.

This High Efficiency (HE) facility that has been running since 2007 has such impressive results that we have set up HARVEST WASTE to spread the technology internationally.
