  • [TECH TOUR] Covanta Trash to Steam Plant Tour

    The ASME Philadelphia Section has arranged for a group tour of the Covanta Conshohocken Renewable Energy Plant. This plant converts municipal waste into electricity.

    Incineration is an uncontrolled combustion process without energy recovery. Energy-from-Waste (EfW) facilities that recover energy from municipal solid waste (MSW) in specially designed boilers to ensure complete combustion and the recovery of energy. The energy recovery – in the form of steam and electricity – is then used for the communities in which the facilities operate. EfW facilities also employ state-of-the-art pollution control equipment to scrub and filter emissions, preventing their release into our environment. The result is clean, renewable energy.

    Tour Time/Date: 1:00pm Friday, May 18, 2018

    Covanta Address: 1155 Conshohocken Rd, Conshohocken, PA 19428

    Participants must wear closed toe shoes.
