HZI built Greece’s first dry fermentation plant in the Epirus region. The project was the country’s first step to recovering energy from organic waste. Around 105,000 tonnes of municipal waste are delivered to the plant every year. The organic fraction is removed in the two sorting lines of the mechanical biological treatment (MBT) system before being fed into the digestion process. The client, Terna Energy, which will operate the plant for the next 25 years, also has a service and support contract with HZI.
