Waste to Energy

Municipal solid wastes have a calorific value that can be measured by professional and scientific analysis. Through an industrialized and proven process it is possible to take advantage of this calorific value and to use it for the production of sustainable electric energy without the use of fossil fuels. In order to achieve this, it is fundamental in the first instance to obtain the assurance of the supply of the waste by means of a concession contract granted by the corresponding Municipality, secondly to select a technology that guarantees the profitability and the competitiveness with the other technologies of the market according to the rules of Cyprus and the European Union Wholesale Electricity Market, and third to ensure the sale of energy through Power Purchase Agreement(s), PPA(s).


Our project has a great social value by avoiding health and environmental problems, and reducing emissions of millions of tons of CO2 annually. The Municipality will receive financial aid month by month, which will increase during the period of the concession, assigned to benefit social programs in the community. Competitive and profitable project that generates financial benefits with fewer risks than natural gas generation projects and other clean technologies, because it does not depend on environmental phenomena such as solar radiation, rainfall or wind. Nor does it depend on international fossil fuel prices or the Euro / US dollar exchange rate. This is the firm basis of the sustainability-profitability of our project.


 We have Exclusive Installer & Operator for Major Waste to Energy Specialized Components Suppliers, with over 50 years of experience and +5,400 systems installed worldwide, some of them operating for over than 30 years.


• Profitable technology of a scalable model for the treatment of =>120 tons of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) / per single unit / per day.

• In addition to MSW and waste landfilled, rubber tires can be processed to increase energy generation.

• Cost-effective method for energy generation and recycling (ferrous and non-ferrous materials).

• Production of 750 KWh per ton of MSW or higher.

• Higher quality technology, shorter delivery time and lower initial investment per delivered to grid GWh in comparison with other types of technologies.

• The key criterion for the selection of this technology was that it could produce electrical energy with a facility 30 years Lifecycle Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) per kWh much below to a LCOE of a Natural Gas Cogeneration plant in several countries worldwide. FOB the interconnection to grid point.

• Meets USA and international environmental standards including the European Union, (EPA, EU) Systems.

• Operator with years of proven experience.

• It is a mature technology that has been proven in other facilities worldwide.

In addition to the following considerations:

• No fossil fuels needed for the normal operation of the technology

• No volatility oil market price risk on the feedstock fuel.

• And zero currency USD vs. Euro rate risk.

• Continuous electricity production (24/7). Plant factor above 94%.

• Without pre-segregation process of the Municipal Solid Waste.

• Economically viable from a minimum of 120tpd volume waste.

• No requirements of large volumes of water for normal operation 56mt3 per day. Typically less than required by a conventional thermal power plant technology: Coal, Natural Gas Combined Cycle, Turbo generation.

• Technology with currently operating plants worldwide in volumes of 120 tons of MSW per day or higher.

• GEDESA is Capable of delivering the entire Power Plant on a BOT System at minimum or no cost to the Municipality.

• EPC available to build the facility in Limassol Cypress.
