Transport by railway

Transport by railway

The type of transportation is a key factor in the environmental compatibility of the plant.

Logistics concept without equal in the world

About 500,000 tons of waste are delivered to the waste utilisation plant per year. In addition, the waste products remaining after incineration need to be transported off as well.

EVN Abfallverwertung NÖ pursued the goal of designing the transport and delivery of waste as environmentally friendly as the operation of plant itself. For this reason, the vast majority of waste and almost all incineration waste products are transported by railway in special containers.
  
At ten reloading stations all across Lower Austria, the waste is collected, pressed, and loaded into containers to be transported to the waste incineration plant by eco-friendly railway. This is accomplished through ten reloading stations positioned around the plant all across Lower Austria.
   
In terms of sustainability and resource conservation, EVN Abfallverwertung NÖ is able to save additional emissions from road traffic as well as about 40,000 truck transports per year.
