WtE plant Basel

The waste to energy (EfW) plant in Basel, which disposes of the entire waste in the North Western part of Switzerland, is one of our most loyal customers. We have been co-operating with this customer since the 1970s, even before we had our own refractory systems. The first test installations of the newly developed Mokesys® system occurred in 1998. This concept has proven itself which is why the third generation of back-cast Mokesys® tiles are in use today. The co-operation has been a great success for operator IWB Basel as well as for Mokesa AG as the plant has an availability of 92% to 96%. The plant in Basel is therefore one of the leading EfW plants in Switzerland when it comes to energy generation. Thanks to increasing amounts of waste and continual improvements, the plant in Basel now achieves a degree of efficiency of some 75%.
