Waste-to-Energy Plant

Bolzano Sud, Italy

2015

Shortlisted

In designing the new waste-to-energy plant at Bolzano Sud, reducing the visual volume of the complex whilst at the same time giving it an image which is compatible with the surrounding area, were the objectives set for the project by Studio Claudio Lucchin and Associates.

The new plant consists of two huge units which run alongside the motorway on one side and the Isarco River on the other. The energy produced by the plant will be used for the heating and domestic hot water needs of 8,000 inhabitants. It will also help to reduce carbon dioxide emissions equal to 80,000 tonnes a year.
