Valorsul's Energy Valorisation Center celebrates 20 years of existence today. In two decades, 14 million tons of waste were transformed into energy.
This plant, pioneer in Portugal, is intended to treat waste from undifferentiated collection. Each day it receives close to 2,000 tons of urban waste and produces enough energy to supply a city of 150 thousand inhabitants.
Twenty years after its construction, it was possible to divert 14 million tonnes of waste from landfill, transforming it into energy. This energy is sent to the electricity grid, saving the use of other sources, thus avoiding imports.
