Energy from Waste at Babcock & Wilcox

As a vital part of a strong and sustainable waste management chain, producing energy from waste (also called waste to energy) is an economically and ecologically sound way to provide a renewable source for energy while diverting waste from landfills.

B&W has more than 155 years of experience in designing, supplying and servicing some of the world’s cleanest, most efficient energy and environmental systems.

Our energy-from-waste (EfW) capabilities, including the state-of-the-art Vølund™ combustion technology, developed and improved over many decades, have been used in more than 650 applications – engineered, tested and proven to offer real and lasting benefits.

Waste-to-Energy Overview
