Bethards. “B&W Vølund’s industry-leading waste-to-energy combustion and emissions control technologies are an ideal fit to meet the growing demand for turnkey waste-to-energy plants.”
Engineering work is currently underway. The project is scheduled for completion in early 2013. 

B&W Vølund is one of the world's leading suppliers of equipment and technologies designed to convert household waste and biomass into thermal energy.
