Bi-Annual Maintenance Underway

Currently, Dublin Waste to Energy Ltd. is conducting the first of its 2019 bi-annual maintenance programs. 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.

  • Annually diverts at least 600,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste from landfill
