At ENERIS everything starts with a goal of protecting the environment in Poland.
The business model, based on circular economy, is the basis of thinking about how to effectively engage all stakeholders so as to build a Polish corporation that will change the environment around us. The key is shared responsibility and taking actions on many levels.
Practically speaking, we are able to offer complete solutions for local governments and businesses, as regards environmental protection: municipal services, managing raw materials, producing energy from renewable sources, including waste, sludge and biomass, as well as wastewater management.
We believe that the key to efficient environmental protection is a comprehensive view of the problem, cooperation and solutions tailored to specific needs.
Standard, scattered approach to environmental protection, including waste management, is not sufficient. It is necessary to capture a wider context, to understand connections and dependences. Only then can we assure synergy, increased economic efficiency, and an environmental effect. Waste is raw material, from which we can recover valuable substances, materials, and energy that can be used in industry and households. We call this approach the circular economy.
Our experienced staff, proven technological and financial solutions, and the nationwide structure help us meet every challenge in the field of environmental protection.
The above scheme illustrates well the concept called the circular economy. Each of us, regardless of lifestyle and where we live, produces waste and sewage everyday. Spent liquids go to sewage treatment plants, which remove impurities from them and transfer them then as water to households or industries, depending on the quality. Waste from sewage treatment plants (the so-called sewage sludge) are used in the power industry for the production of heat and electricity. In these two forms, they finally go to the inhabitants and to the industry.
Waste, that were forwarded to public utilities during collections, are processed in two ways – by sorting or recovery within the Mechanical and Biological Treatment Systems (MBP). Waste, from which we cannot recover anything anymore (i.e. the so-called ballast and compost), are put into storage. The remainder is recycled and recovered energically (in heat and power plants, in cement plants). Raw materials subjected to recycling go to the industry, which produces goods for the inhabitants. Heat and electricity produced from waste also go to the inhabitants and to the industry. The cycle is complete.
