Turning waste into energy
Fortum has production facilities in the Nordics, where energy from waste is utilised in the form of district heating and process heat as well as electricity. At all our facilities, we have increased the efficiency of heat production from waste for district heating with significant investments during the last couple of years. We work closely with our district heat customers to continuously improve our products, and to help them maintain their competitiveness in the long term.
The district heating generated by waste incineration is called Eco Heat. We have verified that the district heating produced using waste heat is CO2 neutral. It is climate-friendly as it does not result in carbon dioxide emissions. More specifically, verifiable criteria have been set for the Eco Heat product.
