UPCOMING MSPE-HOSTED EVENTS:
COVANTA SEMASS PLANT TOUR, JUNE 1, 2016:
The Massachusetts Society of Professional Engineers (MSPE) welcomes members, their colleagues and guests to enjoy a guided tour of the Covanta Semass Plant in Wareham, MA on Wednesday, June 1, 2016.
Covanta is a leader in sustainable waste and energy solutions. With over 50 facilities around the world, Covanta’s Energy-from-Waste facilities convert approximately 20 millions tons of waste into enough renewable energy to power one million homes andrecycle over 500,000 tons of metal annually – enough to build five Golden Gate Bridges and manufacture two billion aluminum beverage cans every year!
Covanta’s Southeastern Massachusetts (SEMASS) Resource Recovery Facility provides the community with an alternative to municipal solid waste (MSW) disposal at landfills. Since opening in 1988, the 95-acre facility has employed a shred-and-burn technology to create fuel, enabling the plant’s processing of more than one million tons of solid waste each year.
This is more than one-fifth of all MSW generated in Massachusetts annually. The resulting electricity serves nearly 40 communities in Southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod, and the metropolitan Boston vicinity, and meets the needs of more than 75,000 homes. The facility also recovers nearly 35,000 tons of recyclable ferrous and non-ferrous metals annually from pre-combustion magnets and bottom ash processing.
