The waste combustion plant in the south outskirts of Trondheim. When this picture was taken it was being renovated and expanded. It's now heating a third of the town, the goal is half the town. Domestic and industrial waste is collected from a large district and the smoke is very clean, close to pure water vapor. It's three weeks before midwinter and the sun is low in the sky.
