Los Botados / Dominican Republic

Los Botados is our lighthouse project to develop a whole region of four communities in terms of waste management. In total there are 77,000 residents, producing 70 t of waste per day. FCC Energy takes over the full process from waste collection in the cities with FCC garbage trucks, which bring it to the plant south of Reparadero. There, a 5MW biomass plant burns all that waste. The generated electricity is given back to those communities in return.

With this plant FCC follows international standards like the United Nations “Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”. It focusses on securing affordable and clean energy, decent work, economic growth and climate change measures.
