The Wheelabrator Baltimore energy-from-waste facility uses up to 2,250 tons of post-recycled everyday waste from Baltimore area homes and businesses as a local, sustainable fuel to generate as much as 64 MW of clean, renewable electricity for sale to the local utility — the equivalent of supplying the electrical needs of 40,000 Maryland homes as well as its own operations. The plant provides steam to the downtown heating loop — which serves more than 230 businesses including M&T Bank Stadium, home of the Baltimore Ravens — in addition to providing power to thousands of Baltimore-area homes, using local waste as fuel to create a local-energy ecosystem that recycles metals, provides power, reduces the need for landfill, and lowers CO2 emissions.

In December 2009, Baltimore County extended its initial term for an additional 15 years in three, five-year renewal terms, recognizing the value of using local waste as fuel to create a local-energy ecosystem that recycles metals, provides power and steam, lowers CO2 by offsetting the use of fossil fuels and reduces methane emissions from landfills.
