Turku municipal waste is converted to energy in Estonia

An average of eight hauls of municipal waste is shipped from Turku to Estonia every day. If the waste was not transported across the Gulf of Finland, it would be buried on a dump in Finland. Waste produced by Turku households has been transported to overseas waste-to-energy incineration plants since 2010 – to the plant of Eesti Energia in Estonia since last autumn and before that to Sweden.

“Emissions from the transport of waste for recovery are notably lower than emissions from its treatment, not to mention burying it on a dump,” says Patrik Jalonen, an operations manager at the Turku region waste management company (TSJ).
