First UK energy from waste project is launched following extensive research.
Solar 21 launched its first energy from waste project following extensive research. Energy from Waste (EFW), which is sometimes know as Energy Recovery, produces energy from waste that is not recyclable or compostable. It provides a sustainable, safe and affordable waste treatment solution.EfW has many benefits for the environment and the economy. It contributes towards meeting carbon emissions and renewable energy targets while also reducing dependency on energy imports. When used for electricity generation, EfW technologies have a steady and controllable output, sometimes referred to as providing “baseload” power. EfW has very good sustainability and greenhouse gas-saving characteristics, as it makes further use of materials that have already been discarded. (Pictured: Severnside EFW plant in the UK)
