The incineration plant at Heimdal mainly uses residual waste to heat the water used for district heating. The waste comes from all over central Norway, from Saltfjellet in the north to Dovre in the south.

From Heimdal, hot water runs in pipes to large parts of the city. Among the institutions receiving district heating in Trondheim are St. Olav's Hospital, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Lerkendal Stadium and Nidaros Cathedral. In addition, most residential areas in the city are warmed up by district heating.

In order to provide the city with a secure supply of district heating, substations have been established at Marienborg, Nidarvoll, Dragvoll, Lilleby, Øya, Midtbyen, Brattøra, Heggstadmoen and Ladehammeren.

The plant is subject to strict environmental requirements. Each of the three furnaces has its own purification facility for removing contaminated particles and gas.
