Using waste to provide energy for the community
Rising waste production, diminishing landfill capacity and increasing regulation are issues which affect everyone. In a city the size of London, logistical problems of moving waste to a disposal site add more pressure to find sensible waste management solutions that address the “proximity principle”; minimising unnecessary transportation and taking responsibility for local waste production.
Discover the process of energy recovery at SELCHP.
Energy recovery provides a long term sustainable solution for waste disposal. Once the options of waste reduction, re-use and recycling are exhausted, residual waste can be sent to Energy Recovery Facilities to produce power for the National Grid.
Throughout the working life of the facility, SELCHP has maintained a close relationship with the community.
With up to 460,000 tonnes of waste processed each year, SELCHP delivers a safe and affordable service for the disposal of the waste of many London residents.
