This article presents an innovative solution for drying waste in bioreactors on the example of the Municipal Waste Treatment Plant (ZUOK) in Olsztyn. Shredded mixed waste undergoes fermentation in bioreactors and produces heat for waste drying. Waste transported to the plant is divided into sorted waste which is recycled and mixed waste which is processed into different size fractions. Processed waste is used in the production of alternative fuel which can be burned in dedicated systems in cement plants or incineration plants. Around 5-15% of waste cannot be processed and is landfilled.
