  • Monument Antwerp Initiative Turns Trash to Steam and Reduces Emissions

    Monument employees are always up for exploring innovative possibilities – whether they are for increasing capacity, adding capabilities, improving efficiency, or making operations more environmentally-friendly.

    The site will soon be powered in part by high-temperature steam generated by the burning of household trash at a nearby incinerator.
