Characteristics of the Book
The volume looks at Bolzano’s new waste-to-heat plant, completed in 2013, designed to handle the waste of a whole province and supply district electricity and heating. The project is presented from several angles: the plant and its history; the architectural concept; contextualization; plant technology and functioning; communication issues with the resident population. The volume includes articles, pictures, concept sketches and architectural drawings, operational diagrams and explanatory technical sheets to give an exhaustive insight into the many elements that have to come together in such a complex undertaking.
