Center for Resources and Energy in Hamburg
Stadtreinigung Hamburg plans to combine essential aspects of the energy turnaround with aspects of the resource revolution with the Centre for Resources and Energy (ZRE), located at the site of the former waste incineration plant at Stellinger Moor.
Only a few commercial sectors are able to provide a sustainable contribution for both, the area of conservation of resources and the Energiewende (transition to renewable energy mix) waste management can. The planned Centre for Resources and Energy is going to consist of five plant sections, treating different waste streams and converting them for recycling and energetic reuse.
Currently, the investment for the Center for Resources and Energy is estimated to be approx. 280 million Euro. Presumably, the completion of all plant sections will be completed in 2025.
Plant section 1: Sorting facility for up to 140,000 Mg/a of mixed municipal waste which corresponds to the amount of municipal waste
Plant section 2: Digestion and composting of 45,000 Mg/a source segregated kitchen and yard waste
Plant section 3: Treatment of biogas (Amin Wash), which is fed into the public natural gas grid
Plant section 4: Biomass power plant with a thermal capacity of 47 MW
Plant section 5: RDF power plant with a thermal capacity of 47 MW
