Macau Refuse Incineration Plant
ECOVE works closely with the Macau government to recover energy from resources.
After ECOVE took over operations in 2009, we focused on continuously upgrading and improving the systems. As a result, we processed 70% more waste in 2016 than 2009 and generated 12% more electricity per ton of waste. ECOVE contributes to creating a clean environment for residents and visitors, recovering value from waste to generate renewable energy.
