Published in the dossier of July 2017

The city of Mexico has chosen Veolia to construct the first Waste-to-Energy Plant (WTEP) in Latin America – announced as one of the largest in the world – and run it for thirty years. This facility will treat 1.6 million metric tons of household waste per year, i.e. a third of the city’s waste. The 965 GWh of green energy produced will directly power Mexico’s metro in a circular economy loop.
