Wasatch Integrated Waste Management District
The energy recovery facility generates renewable energy through the incineration of solid waste. The waste burns at a temperature high enough to convert water into steam, which is used by Hill Air Force Base to heat base facilities, in addition to other uses. Electricity is also generated from the steam; enough to power site operations with a portion sold to PacifiCorp. Call (801) 614-5600 for tours. Pictures
Solid waste that cannot be incinerated, due to incinerator capacity or size, is landfilled using the best available environmental protection practices. Landfill gas, generated during the decomposition of organic materials in the landfill, is collected and shipped to Hill Air Force Base where the gas is converted to electricity.
