The project is bringing real positive environmental, social and economic benefits, with a commitment to the design and construction of the most sustainable facilities possible.

Air Quality
The Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) will use world-class, proven technology to capture and control pollutants, ensuring it is one of the cleanest and safest in the world.
When the facilities are in operation, they will actively reduce the reliance on transporting waste outside of north London, reducing lorry trips and diverting waste from landfill.
Circular Economy
Our key priority is to encourage north London residents to reduce their waste and reuse materials. This is essential to tackle consumption-based carbon emissions in the face of the Climate Emergency.
Habitats are being created at Edmonton EcoPark to safeguard a variety of ecosystems, including green roofs, bird boxes, insect hotels and more.
