GMVA Gemeinschafts-Müll-Verbrennungsanlage Niederrhein

Highly efficient, cutting-edge technology

GMVA stands out from the crowd thanks to its state-of-the-art incineration technology and its exemplary emission values. Right from the moment it was established in 1972, the plant has been continuously extended and adapted to ensure the technology it uses reflects the latest developments. We can, therefore, quite rightly talk of a modern and environmentally friendly plant with emission values that are well below the legal limits.

  • Plant design

    • How exactly does our waste incineration plant work? What types of technology do we use? Answers to these and many other questions can be found here.

    Energy production

    • By thermally treating waste, GMVA generates regenerative, eco-friendly electricity and district heat. We produce enough energy to cover the electricity requirements of around 100,000 households.

    Raw materials

    • GMVA employs a number of other processes – besides the actual thermal treatment of waste – which require various raw materials, from ammonia solution to hydrochloric acid.

    Residual materials

    • 92% of the volume of waste sent for thermal treatment is transformed into electricity and heat. The residual materials left over are also put to good use.

    Facts & figures

    • The waste incinerated by GMVA has an average calorific value of 10,500 kJ/kg. Those searching for some more facts and figures about the efficiency of our plant should click here.

    Plant tours

    • GMVA regularly invites the public to tour its plant. Every year, a large number of people make the most of this opportunity to take a look around. Such tours are, of course, particularly useful for schoolchildren who are working on projects dealing with the subject of waste.
