Management and Energy Utilization of Waste and Biomass
GEK TERNA Group has been actively involved in the waste management sector in Greece for the last years. The company has already acquired substantial and specialized expertise and technological know-how in the field, which enables it to undertake integrated waste management projects in the private and public sectors. The company aims to further intensify its acquisition of expertise and related technical skills through strategic partnerships with specialized international firms, in order to capture a sizable share in the continuously developing sector of waste management in Greece and abroad.
Furthermore, the Group is able to offer innovative, financially viable and efficient solutions with regard to the reduction of pollution generated by the ineffective or even non-existent management of municipal solid waste, as well as of residues or by-products of agricultural, forestall or stock breeding activities in the country. This is made possible by the company’s acquired working experience and specialized know-how obtained through its strategic partnerships. For the offered solutions, the company can guarantee the minimal possible environmental impact and the viability of the relative investments, through the generation of environmentally acceptable and valuable products. Depending on local requirements, the choice can be either the production of electric or thermal energy, or the production of bio fuels, soil conditioners, fertilizers and/or other products.
Through its subsidiary TERNA ENERGY, GEK TERNA Group has participated in all the big tenders released throughout Greece in the last two years, proposing integrated and optimized solutions, “project by project”. Through this approach, GEK TERNA Group can offer the State, a wide spectrum of technical, financial and socially viable solutions, coupled with the production of useful products, while complying fully with the strictest Greek and EU environmental standards.
TERNA ENERGY was awarded for the project “Municipal Solid Waste Treatment Plant of Epirus Region" and for PPP project “Peloponnese Waste Treatment Project”, an investment of €154 million Euros.
The agreement for the project "Municipal Solid Waste Treatment Plant of Epirus Regionin" was signed in July 2017 and the construction of the waste management unit has already begun. The agreement for Project of the Peloponnese will as well be signed soon.
