Biological och energy waste

Daily kitchen waste is source separated into biological och energy waste. Biological fractions (biologically degradable) should be placed into the Bio waste bin and energy fractions into the Energy waste bin.

Daily kitchen waste is then transported to Jakobstad. The Bio waste is transported to a biogas plant owned by ASJ Stormossen, outside Vaasa, where the bio fractions are utilised as biogas for traffic vehicles. The Energy waste is crushed at the factory Ewapower Ab Oy and become recycled fuel.

Approximately 60 tonnes of daily kitchen waste is delivered to Jakobstad; on a yearly basis this makes approximately 15 600 tonnes of waste. This means that 130 kg of kitchen waste is produced per person in the Ekorosk region annually.
