A small UK city hired US Covanta to generate energy from waste

 

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead has awarded a long term contract to treat all residual and organic waste generated in the borough to Covanta Energy. The task of the preferred bidder will be to turn approximately 30,000 tonnes of non-recyclable municipal waste, which would otherwise have ended up in landfill into a fuel to generate "largely renewable" electricity.

Covanta has a contract, according to which 15,000 tonnes of food and garden waste collected in the borough each year will be treated by its organic waste partner, Agrivert Energy and fertiliser will be produced from the waste. The company said that the award of this contract is part of its long-term plan to develop a number of waste to energy facilities across the UK. According to the local cabinet the waste management solution will help drive up recycling rates, provide value for money for population and will generate significant levels of sustainable energy, by diverting waste away from landfill and using it as a fuel to generate renewable electricity. The plan is in four years' time to zero landfill tax when waste that can't be recycled is used to generate energy.

The experience of the UK will be presented during the international Eco Forum Save the Planet (Waste Management & Recycling), which will take place in Sofia, March 28-30. The parallel South-East European Business Event focuses on Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Sources and is organized by Via Expo.
