Emissions

Emissions

Among the fundamental principles of EVN Abfallverwertung NÖ are transparent processes at the thermal waste utilisation plant. Each and everybody should be able to take a closer look at the actual emissions of the plant.

Regional emission reduction

The energetic interplay of waste incineration plant and thermal power station enables the substitution of fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas.
EVN Abfallverwertung NÖ makes the emission data of all three incineration lines available on a daily basis and in accordance with the Austrian ÖNORM standard in pdf format. Moreover, the emission rates are constantly transmitted online to the public authorities of the Lower Austrian provincial government.
