Residual waste contains energy, stored in the products and materials within that residual waste. AVR works with turbines that convert the overheated steam from the combustion process into electricity. Our installations are directly linked to the public electricity grid. Because residual waste – in contrast to coal - isn´t extracted from the earth, the electricity that AVR delivers is renewable electricity, and in the case of waste wood and paper pulp it is even 100% green and sustainable electricity. We deliver it directly to Dutch power companies.
Our net power production corresponds to the annual electricity consumption of around 200,000 households.
Residual waste offers a wide range possibilities, including electricity.
