Myth: Energy from waste is not supported by scientists and governmental organisations
The fact: Energy from waste is recognised by DEFRA as a better solution for the environment than landfill. It is recommended in line with the waste hierarchy by experts including the Environment Agency
To help tackle the climate emergency and to prevent rubbish going to landfill we are redeveloping Edmonton EcoPark and building the greenest Energy Recovery Facility in the country, as well as modern recycling facilities.
ACCIONA, the lead contractor for the Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) Project working on behalf of North London Waste Authority (NLWA) is hosting a Meet the Buyer event on Thursday 19th May 8am to 4pm to encourage local suppliers to submit interest in working on the project.
North London Waste Authority (NLWA) yesterday, 24 January 2022, signed the contract to build the UK’s most advanced Energy Recovery Facility with the infrastructure and renewable energy developer, ACCIONA.
Three years ago, on 22 January 2019, works to transform Edmonton EcoPark into a new sustainable waste hub commenced. Since then, the project has gone from strength to strength and the site is unrecognisable from when construction first began.
