About Us

CEWEP Ireland is the Irish branch of CEWEP – the Confederation of European Waste-to-Energy Plants.

CEWEP is an industry body that represents municipal waste incineration plants. Our members include  2 waste-to-energy companies in Ireland, and close to 380 municipal waste incineration plants across Europe.

By 2020 it is anticipated that members in Ireland will have a total treatment capacity of over 1,070,000 tonnes per annum residual waste and export more than 90MW electricity and/or heat.

We support both Irish waste and energy policy, and an integrated approach to managing waste. We promote the development of environmentally sustainable Waste-to-Energy (WtE) facilities in Ireland.
