A new study by Equanimator and Zero Waste Europe (ZWE) has found that the energy efficiencies of EU waste incinerators are 'appallingly low'. Titled ‘Debunking Efficient Recovery: the Performance of EU Incineration Facilities’, it found that typical efficiencies are around the mid-20s per cent in the best cases. This was especially true for the generation of electricity.
