Visit to BSR - Berliner Stadtreinigungsbetriebe - Waste-to-Energy Plant Ruhleben

On 21 February 2018 the Unknown Berlin group visited BSR (Berlin's City Cleaning Department), one of Berlin’s most important business enterprises.

Dr. Thomas Klöckner, the media spokesperson of BSR, gave an excellent presentation on the company’s main tasks and operations to our participating members from Europe, Africa and Asia. Besides reducing waste, generating energy from the waste is probably one of today’s most important environmental issues. Mr. Klöckner´s professional guidance through the Waste-to-Energy Plant Ruhleben demonstrated how exactly waste can be exploited energetically and substantially. We had a vivid exchange of information during the presentation and the tour, and more during the discussions about the waste recycling in the home countries of our members.
