The Cremona plant was built back in 1997 and since then has been operating smoothly, burning more than 100 thousand tons of waste per year. It does not just burn waste: the complex operates on the Waste2Energy technology, that is, waste into energy. Waste is burned to generate electricity and heat for heating nearby settlements. In this regard, the MRZ does not differ from the usual cogeneration plant, only waste is used as fuel instead of gas or coal. The burning complex generates more than 6.6 megawatts of electricity.
