Small Scale Energy from Waste (EfW) Plants

“a good potential of being disruptive in a market which is currently dominated by a small number of very large Energy from Waste facilities.”

A global leader in environmental and advisory solutions

Tiercel Europe’s Small Scale EfW Plants are IED-compliant and designed to incinerate 21,000t + 10% of RDF shred to 300mm particle size per year. Each plant will generate enough electricity to power 2,300 homes while diverting waste from either Landfill or Export.

The plant has passed independent technical due diligence, comes with a 5-year warranty, and can be deployed within 12 months from order!

The system incorporates combustion technology from our partners Justsen Energiteknik A/S, who have been designing and manufacturing combustion technology in Denmark since 1959. The design uses an advanced water-cooled hydraulic step grate system and hot water boiler to allow the recovery of energy from the feedstock. Ecotec and Justsen have a corporate agreement that facilitates Justsen RDF/Hazardous combustion technology through Tiercel Europe in the UK, Ireland and selected territories across Europe.

Filtration and abatement:

The system also incorporates patented abatement recycling technology which reduces the operational cost of the facility by recycling unused abatement chemicals. Fully IED compliant the plant is designed to run to the latest BREF limits as per the table below.

Abatement Recirculation

Energy generation:

Our plant utilises Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) Modules to provide power for around 2,300 homes. The equipment allows the production of electrical energy utilising a heat source through the turbine of an ORC. The ORC unit is a system based on a closed-loop thermodynamic cycle for the generation of electric and thermal power, especially suitable for distributed generation. ORC systems can generate electric and thermal power exploiting any heat source (such as waste incineration).


Fully IED compliant the plant is designed to run to the latest BREF limits as per the table here:
