Tour Announcement

You can’t be a resident of Central PA and not have heard the “Harrisburg Incinerator” mentioned in the news. It’s been a subject of political controversy for years. But did you ever wonder what goes on inside? How are steam and electricity produced from garbage? Here’s your chance!

The Central PA Chapter of ASHRAE will tour the Susquehanna Resource Management Complex on Wednesday, January 20, 2016 at 4:00 pm. Immediately following the tour, a networking reception will be held at the Appalachian Brewing Company at 50 N. Cameron Street from 5:45 pm to 7:00 pm. Below are tour guidelines (please read this before you arrive), directions, and information on parking.

The “Harrisburg Incinerator” began commercial operation in 1972. It is the oldest operating Energy-from-Waste Facility in the United States. The facility is designed to process 800 tons-per-day of solid waste which generates up to 21.8 megawatts of renewable electricity. The facility also has the capability to sell steam to the local steam district.

In addition to energy production, Covanta Harrisburg operates an on-site solid waste transfer station for municipal solid waste and construction and demolition material. Recovery of ferrous metals (steel) is also performed at the facility. Covanta Harrisburg has an operating agreement with the facility's owner, the Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority (LCSWMA).

The tour will begin promptly at 4:00 pm. The facility address is 1670 South 19th Street, Harrisburg, PA.

Please follow the instructions below to register. Your registration fee includes hors oeuvres and craft beer at the networking reception.
