Around 2.5 kWh of electricity are produced from one kilo of non-recyclable waste. That’s the same energy used by two electric heaters running at full power for an hour!
Klemetsrudanlegget AS ensures that the non-recyclable waste of households, municipal organisations and industry is utilised. Energy recovery from non-recyclable waste replaces the use of electricity, oil and gas for heating, and removes substances that are hazardous to health and the environment from the cycle. Even for waste with a low energy content, energy recovery is still more environmentally-friendly than depositing the waste in landfills, since this results in greater greenhouse gas emissions.
