Latest News

Dublin Waste to Energy Ltd. will be conducting the second of its 2022 maintenance programs commencing the 21st of October for 10 days. During this period, there will be times when reduced or no steam will be released from the stacks. This is due to boilers being taken off-line to enable full plant inspections, ensuring that the plant can continue reliable operations with emissions significantly below required licence limits.
