Caption: Domestic waste incinerator turbine hall. The turbines (green) generate electricity, and are powered by energy generated from the burning of domestic waste. This incinerator uses municipal solid waste (MSW) such as paper and plastics, as opposed to sludge from wastewater. The waste is burnt in furnaces, reducing the waste to ashes and combustion gases. Incineration of domestic waste reduces the need to use fossil fuels to produce energy, and reduces the amount of waste sent to landfill sites. This is the Ivry Paris XIII incinerator, in Paris, France. Opened in 1969, it is one of the oldest such incinerators in the world. It burns nearly 700,000 tons of waste a year. The power capacity is 63 megawatts (MW).
