Project Summary

Waste to Energy

Urban energy recovery and development concept

An industrial quarter currently suffers from an overflow of waste, recurrent power outages, and a lack of skilled labor. Overflowing landfills are in dire need of an emergency waste plan.

The project offers a set of sustainable solutions for reactivating the area, transforming waste into energy, and reinstating local artisanship. The project combines a waste-to-energy plant with public facilities and is aimed at raising public awareness regarding an unsustainable condition.
