London's Rubbish into Green Eneregy

Waste2Tricity submits bid to London Waste & Recycling Board for conversion of London’s rubbish into green energy
A consortium led by Waste2Tricity Limited has submitted an Expression of Interest to the London Waste & Recycling Board (LWRB), in response to the Board’s open call for environmentally responsible and innovative approaches to deal with the capital’s 21 million tonnes of rubbish produced annually. Waste2Tricity’s solution is to use plasma gasification technology combined with fuel cells to convert waste to energy, with significant environmental and cost benefits over other methods of electricity generation.

The Waste2Tricity consortium includes AFC Energy plc, Alter NRG, and WSP Environmental. Its proposition is to establish a £135 million commercial scale plant capable of converting 250K tonnes of MSW (municipal solid waste) into electricity a year, helping meet the LWRB’s objectives of reducing, recycling or disposal of waste in ways that are beneficial to the environment.
