EVZA Staßfurt – one millionth tonne processed
EVZA runs one of the most modern thermal waste treatment plants in Germany at its site in Staßfurt.
It is an impressive anniversary and the numbers are impressive too. A total of 1,244 days have passed since Energie- und Verwertungszentrale GmbH, Anhalt (Anhalt energy and recycling centre) began operations. A total of 109 kg of waste has been thermally recycled in 52,900 operating hours.
This is the remarkable achievement of 61 motivated employees at a modern processing plant in the region south of Magdeburg, which has achieved great technical efficiency and created many interesting jobs.
EVZA, which uses highly efficient processes to turn waste into electricity and process heat for local industry, has achieved some very impressive results:
- 600,000 MWh of steam
- 400,000 MWh of electricity
- 290,000 Mg of valuable slag
- 60,000 Mg of usable residual material
This is what the plant has produced since it began operating just under four years ago. With its efficient thermal recycling processes combined with highly efficient filter systems, the EVZA has become a key component of the recycling infrastructure in Saxony-Anhalt and of its electricity and heat supply too. We congratulate all those involved on this superb achievement.
