How long do you expect the current plant to be in operation for?

We anticipate that the current plant will remain in operation until it is decommissioned in approximately 2026-2027. This means that we can continue to divert north London’s waste from landfill as we build the North London Heat and Power Project.

Over the next ten years we are building:

  • an Energy Recovery Facility to generate low carbon energy from waste, in the form of heat and power;

  • a Resource Recovery Facility with an area to process bulky waste and prepare materials for energy recovery, including a brand-new Reuse and Recycling Centre for residents to use; and
  • EcoPark House on the River Lee Navigation, including a new community hub where our residents can learn about the circular economy and how to reduce the carbon impact of their waste.
