  • Monument Antwerp Initiative Turns Trash to Steam and Reduces Emissions

    February 19th, 2019


    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. An exciting two-year project led by the Antwerp team in Belgium promises positive results in each of these critical areas.

    The site will soon be powered in part by high-temperature steam generated by the burning of household trash at a nearby incinerator. The process will reduce the site’s consumption of natural gas and has the potential to increase the site’s power-generating capabilities. It will also reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 40%.
