Description of Services:EGE was established in January 2005 as a separate government entity from the Oslo Waste Management authority, and is responsible for the operation and development of municipal energy recovery plants in Klemetsrud and Haraldrud, as well as the development of additional waste recycling services associated with waste-based energy.

The EGE facility currently has two identical WTE incinerators with a combined capacity of 150,000 tons/year. A third incinerator is currently under construction at the site and when it becomes operational in 2011, the facility will have the combined capacity to handle 310,000 tons/year. The facility handles primarily municipal solid waste from the City of Oslo and surrounding communities, and also accepts infectious waste from hospitals, and other low risk non-hazardous waste fractions that demand special treatment (such as non-hazardous waste pharmaceuticals, contraband, confidential documents, etc.). Packaging, pallets, cardboard, and other related wastes are also accepted from commercial businesses. Over 90% of the waste received at the facility is municipal solid waste.

The energy generated by the plant is utilized primarily for the district hot water heating net in Oslo (300 Gigawatt hour/year), but electricity is also produced by an on-site turbine generator (70 Gigawatt hour/year). In addition, electricity is also being produced at the site using a gas engine powered by landfill gas originating from the nearby closed Grønmo landfill.
