AEB Amsterdam specializes in processing and incineration of waste. The site includes a waste separation facility and a large incinerator. The former municipal entity separates useful waste from all other materials. This separation process is done in collaboration with various business partners. The remainder is transferred to the high-efficiency incinerator. AEB supplies heat from this process to thousands of households throughout Amsterdam.
Some 600 garbage trucks from the surrounding region dispose their contents at the AEB site each day. In addition, ships with containers full of waste from the United Kingdom dock at the facility daily. In total, the company processes 1.4 million tonnes of waste annually.
