Miaoli Energy-from-Waste Plant

Achieving Efficiency and Protecting Ecosystems in Miaoli

As the Miaoli EfW Plant is the only EfW plant in Taiwan built on a coastal wetland, ECOVE spares no effort to preserve the integrity of this fragile ecosystem — without sacrificing operational efficiency. Since beginning operations in 2008, we now generate 15% more electricity per ton of waste, processing up to 500 tons of waste per day and generating electricity for 23,800 households, while also reducing carbon monoxide and flue gas emissions. ECOVE reaches out to the local community to share information about waste management and the environment, even cooperating with the Miaoli Environmental Protection Bureau to develop the Miaoli EfW facility into a certified environmental education facility.
