We are Proud to be involved in Energy from Waste (EfW) projects like:
EfW – Greatmoor, North Buckinghamshire
EfW – Herefordshire & Worcestershire
EfW – Ferrybridge, North Yorkshire
EfW – Edinburgh and Mid Lothian
Project values range from 1 million – 2.1 million
Why do we need an EfW? Why can’t we just keep landfilling our waste?
Landfilling waste is an unfeasible and unviable option to deal with our waste both economically and environmentally. The Government has changed legislation and introduced taxation on landfilling waste with the specific intention of providing incentives for the processing of waste further up the waste hierarchy. Processing our unrecyclable waste in EfW facility means that there will be a reduction in both methane (CH4) emissions from landfill and CO2 emissions from conventional energy generation.
Energy from Waste (EfW) is the process of generating energy in the form of electricity and/or heat from the primary treatment of waste. EfW is a form of energy recovery. Most EfW facilities’ processes produce electricity and/or heat directly through combustion, or produce a combustible fuel commodity, such as methane, methanol, ethanol or synthetic fuels.
The conversion of waste to energy has become a popular and viable route for managing waste.
Here are some of the benefits of the EfW process:
- Reduction of waste going to landfill sites
- Reduction of carbon emissions
- Reduction of the use of fossil fuels
- Electricity and heat can be generated from waste which provides an alternative and more environment-friendly source of energy
- The local community around EfW facilities benefits from the creation of jobs to cost-effective energy
