The combination of the gradual conversion of non-recyclable municipal waste into heat, together with natural gas in the Mařatice heating plant fuel mix, should replace coal in the future. This was decided on Monday, November 15, 2021 at the Committee meeting of the Uherské Hradiště City, which with MVV Energie CZ a.s. is a co-owner of CTZ s.r.o. operating this heating plant. The decision has yet to be confirmed by City representatives.
According to Jörg Lüdorf, Chairman of the Board of Directors of MVV, the decision is in line with the strategy of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from heat production, which MVV group has been promoting for a long time: "Replacing coal with thermal energy from waste that would otherwise end up in landfills is a wise decision. I believe that future generations will appreciate it as well." According to Kamil Ondra, CTZ executive, the selection of a variant using a waste-to-energy plant will enable the heating plant to offer the most advantageous heat prices in the long term, which will be more resistant to fluctuations in the price of natural gas. "I am relieved. I can't imagine that, knowing what is happening on the energy market today, we would convert the heating plant only to natural gas," says Kamil Ondra.
