The fact: Energy from waste is recognised by DEFRA as a better solution for the environment than landfill. It is recommended in line with the waste hierarchy by experts including the Environment Agency
To help tackle the climate emergency and to prevent rubbish going to landfill we are redeveloping Edmonton EcoPark and building the greenest Energy Recovery Facility in the country, as well as modern recycling facilities.
Major works are now fully underway on the new high-tech Energy Recovery Facility at the Edmonton EcoPark in Enfield. It is part of the £1.2 billion redevelopment of the site into an advanced and sustainable waste and recycling hub.
ACCIONA, the lead contractor for the Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) Project working on behalf of North London Waste Authority (NLWA) is hosting a Meet the Buyer event on Thursday 19th May 8am to 4pm to encourage local suppliers to submit interest in working on the project.
Creating a waste management facility in which local communities take pride, which demonstrates value, and is a model for public sector project delivery.
