Ekokem Power Plant
The Ekokem Power Plant is a forerunner in the utilisation of waste. It generates heat for two whole cities in Finland and electricity for the national network by combusting household waste and industrial waste. The waste combustion capacity of the plant is 15.5 tons per hour. It recovers 85 per cent of the energy of the waste, the emissions being only a fraction of those of peat, wood or coal.
