POSCO E&C has completed construction on a waste-to-power plant in Krakow, Poland.
The plant, delivered for Krakow Communal Holding, was constructed in three and a half years.
The $250M facility — the largest daily waste incinerating facility in Poland — is capable of processing 220,000t of household waste annually in an eco-friendly way.
It will produce 11MWh of electricity and supply 35MWh of district heating by using the heat from incineration.
Furthermore, the ash from the waste incineration will be used as the material for road construction through a screening process.
POSCO E&C CEO Han Chan-kun said: "The successful construction of the waste-to-power plant in Krakow is expected to become a solid foundation for POSCO E&C to enter the environment market in Poland and Eastern Europe. Also, it has raised the status of Korea's construction industry to a higher level."
