Waste-to-energy is a vital part of a sustainable waste management chain. A waste-to-energy plant converts solid waste into electricity, heating, metals, water and gravel - an ecological, cost-effective way of energy recovery. We have supplied more than 560 solutions worldwide and rank among the world’s leading suppliers of technology for waste-to-energy plants.

Biomass & Multi-fuels

Multi-Fuel Energy
Tomorrow’s biomass energy plants need to be ultra-flexible: Fuel flexibility and high thermal efficiency - now you can get both. Integrating various combustion technologies means that many types of fuel can be used in the same plant, making plants less dependent on a single type of fuel. B&W Vølund have supplied more than 60 biomass and multi-fuel energy plants worldwide.

Aftermarket Support

Throughout the useful lifetime of a renewable energy plant, there will be many reasons to call a service specialist. Parts wear out. Technology changes. Needs change.

"This plant will produce in excess of 7 MW of electricity. That is a major power generator. It will be one of the most efficient plants in the whole of UK. That is why it was chosen. I think this is the technology that the UK should follow. It is an exemplar project."
