Energy recovery

Energy from waste (EfW) on the Isle of Man.

Energy-from-waste (EfW) on the Isle of Man is the thermal treatment by incineration of municipal, clinical and some industrial solid waste under controlled conditions, recovering renewable energy in the form of electricity.

EfW plays a crucial role in an integrated portfolio of waste management activities and, in addition to production of electricity, by-products of the process such as metals and ash can be recycled.

Learn more about the energy-from-waste process and benefits.

You can go through the energy-from-waste journey with SUEZ recycling and recovery UK's Green Team on the dedicated education website too - just visit rethink.sita.co.uk. Here you will find journeys for different types of waste, a game and quiz, plus our education resources for teachers.
