Waste-to-Energy conversion: success in Azerbaijan
At the end of 2008, the CNIM Group signed a €350 million contract with the Economic Development Minister of Azerbaijan for the construction of a waste-to-energy plant processing municipal waste for the capital city of Baku. The plant capacity is 500 000 t / per year and it will be operational in 2012.
The contract also provides for CNIM to operate the plant during a period of 20 years.
The project is entirely financed by the Azeri state.
