Amsterdam will import Rome’s trash and turn it into energy
Rome’s waste mismanagement saga is well known by now, but it seems to have reached at least a partial solution with a recent deal signed between the Italian capital and Amsterdam. The latter defined the conditions for the weekly shipment of 900 tons of trash from Italy to the Netherlands, where it will be delivered to the local Waste Energy Company (AEB).
The latter will burn the Italian garbage in a way that produces heating. In fact, AEB supplies 30,000 households with waste-generated heat.
