November 1, 2018 - Lancaster County SWMA Waste-to-Energy Tour
Tour the 1,200 ton-per-day (TPD) Lancaster Waste-to-Energy (WTE) Facility in Conoy Township. Owned by the Lancaster Solid Waste Management Association (LCSWMA) and operated by Covanta, this 36MW facility processes around 400,000 tons of waste annually.
Also on this tour, learn about LCSWMA’s collaboration with Perdue Agribusiness. LCSWMA provides 15–20% of the steam from the Lancaster WTE Facility to Perdue’s adjacent soybean processing facility.
This unique partnership assists Perdue with reducing its environmental footprint and lowering emissions, thus making it the most highly efficient, technologically advanced, and environmentally sound soybean processing plants in the country.
Parking available at the LCSWMA Admin Building (parking guide).
All safety equipment will be provided (i.e. hard hats, safety glasses, vests and gloves). All attendees need to wear closed-toe shoes, long sleeves and long pants.
