The Bei Tou Incinerator (also spelled as Pei Tou), located in the city of Taipei in Taiwan, is a waste incinerator that burns 1,800 metric tons of garbage generated by the city’s residents each day. The incinerator is also a power plant that can generate a peak electrical energy of 48 megawatts by burning waste - a great example of recycling energy resources. Another unique feature of the facility is that the 150 meters tall chimney is equipped with a revolving restaurant situated at a height of 120 meters and accessible by an elevator. The restaurant is powered by the thermal energy generated by the incinerator itself.

The restaurant named the Star Catcher was built at a cost of USD 250 million and opened for business on January 1, 2000. The incinerator was inaugurated in 1991. To make the air quality safe for the restaurant, the incinerator was fitted with special anti pollution devices.
