Mexico City has entrusted Veolia with the construction and 30-year operation of the first Waste to Energy facility in Latin America, jointly with leading global and Mexican companies. This plant will treat 1.6 million tonnes of household waste per year, twice that of the largest facility in France, and will produce 965 GWh of electricity per year to power the Mexico City Metro.

The 10 million inhabitants of Mexico City produce 13,000 tonnes of waste per day. Today, two-thirds of this waste is sent to landfill. Each day, this new energy recovery facility will transform nearly one third of the city’s household waste into green energy.
