Non-Profit Waste Management
A working waste management plan and clean waste management facility is needed for responsible protection and healing of the climate. Not all waste can be recycled. The BlueSkye Foundation and it’s waste management plants extract energy from non-recyclable waste.
The clean waste management plant is an important part of a well-functioning waste management system. The fuel used in the plant is waste that has already been separated at its source location, and recyclable material, such as glass, metal and biodegradable matter, has been removed. Re-usage and recycling will still be a priority as well as the collection and treatment of hazardous waste.
The waste management plant can also extract energy from industrial waste that previously has been impossible to utilize because of economic or technical issues.
Using clean BlueSkye waste management plants have a several positive environmental impacts.
Carbon dioxide emissions are reduced
Waste replaces the use of fossil fuels, that is, coal and fuel oil, in district heat and electricity production. Energy utilization reduces the amount of carbon dioxide emissions by 15 000 to 20 000 tons in a year.
Our waste management plants represent the most cutting edge technological advancement on the field. Reduced CO2 emissions is one result of the co-operation between the co-operation with trusted scandic manufacturers and BlueSkye Foundation: because of the BluesSkye waste management plants are modern biomass burn and gasification plants, the carbon dioxide emissions of locally can be reduced by 1-20%.
The need for landfills decreases
Almost 90 % of all combustible non-recyclable waste can be utilized in the waste management plant, significantly decreasing the amount of waste disposed at landfills.
Methane, the climate killer, emissions are reduced
As landfilling decreases, methane emissions will also decrease. Methane is over 20 times more harmful to the atmosphere than carbon dioxide.
More waste will be recycled
According to several studies, waste is recycled more efficiently when non-recyclable waste can be used for energy production. Energy utilization and recycling go, thus, often hand in hand. In 2016, landfilling organic material got prohibited in many parts of Europe, and waste management plants are, therefore, becoming more common in Europe and all over the world. This will significantly reduce landfilling in the areas where BlueSkye waste management plants are residing.
To eliminate negative environmental impact, we make sure to also take care of any residuals in the best possible way.
A controlled incineration process ensures that the waste is combusted in the cleanest ways of the industry
The temperature on the grate is over 1 000 °C, a temperature at which also lower-quality waste by the burn rate is incinerated efficiently. The plant is supervised 24 hours a day, and the process is adjusted to keep it clean and safe. The technology used in the plant represents BAT (Best Available Technology). Modern, cutting edge BlueSkye waste management plants all over the world are designated BlueSkye AI monitored and use similar equipment which means that the technology used in the plant has already been thoroughly tested in practice.
