Waste to Energy
The waste material used for fuel is loaded into boilers at Waste to Energy plants and heated in a highly controlled and regulated process that creates steam. The steam, under pressure, is fed into a turbine that spins and drives a generator to create electricity.
Currently, much of our biodegradable waste such as food, garden waste, card and paper is sent to landfill. It is then left to break down, during which time it releases methane, a powerful greenhouse gas. Waste to Energy recovery diverts problematic biodegradable waste from UK landfill and instead turns the waste into a valuable fuel source for the UK economy.
Unlike other renewable energy sources such as solar and wind, a Waste to Energy plant can operate 24/7, supplying consistent and reliable renewable energy.
