In doing so, the company explained that the plant will produce not only high quality recycled materials and also refuse derived fuel (RDF) for waste to energy facilities.
“The plant will provide an environmental solution which supports industry in the capital and avoids the additional transport distances and environmental impact involved in landfill,” commented Powerday managing director, Mark Bensted
“Enfield also sits at the heart of the North London Waste Plan area and development of new infrastructure is at the heart of the plan,” he continued.
Powerday added that the Enfield facility is an example of the sites identified in the North London Waste Plan area which are needed to process the amount of waste being produced, increase recycling and find alternatively ways of using and treating waste in North London.
The North London Waste Plan will set out the planning framework for waste management in the London boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest for the next 15 years up to 2027. It will identify sites for waste management use and set out policies for determining waste planning applications.
