The Dry Fermentation Plant
The dry fermentation plant in the north of Munich uses the energy potential of Munich biowaste by processing it with the environmentally friendly method of dry fermentation. In 2008 the new plant starts its regular operations. It is situated at the Freimann Waste Disposal Area.
