Energy-from-waste plant to be developed in London

Energy-from-waste plant to be developed in London
A £4 million loan has been awarded to Orchid Environmental Limited for the development of an energy-from-waste plant.

Awarded by the London Waste and Recycling Board (LWARB), the money will be used to build a facility on its Bexley site for the creation of low carbon fuel using waste from local homes and businesses.

The plant will be capable of processing 160,000 tonnes of non-recyclable rubbish into secondary recovered fuels (SFR) each year. These fuels will then be used by industrial heat users and in renewable energy facilities.

Orchid's plant will be capable of creating different grade SFR depending on the customer's needs.

London mayor Boris Johnson described the creation of the facility, which will lead to 52 permanent jobs, as "a fantastic example of the green economy in action".

It's thought over 38,000 tonnes of CO2 each year will be saved once the plant enters operation in 2013.

The LWARB is funded with donations from both the Department of Food, Environment and Rural Affairs and the London Development Agency, with the aim of cutting the amount of waste sent to landfill from the capital.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800490717-ADNFCR
