Cory secures funding for RRR facility

Waste management company Cory Environmental has secured funding for its Riverside Resource Recovery (RRR) energy-from-waste facility, enabling the construction phase of the project to begin.

The RRR facility is being constructed in the London Borough of Bexley and will process an average 585,000 tonnes of waste per year, generating 72 MW of electricity enough to supply 66,000 homes.

Most of the residual waste will be transported to the RRR facility in sealed containers carried by barge on the River Thames. Cory estimates that using this system will keep more than 100,000 HGVs off Londons roads each year.

Cory Environmental chief executive officer Malcolm Ward said: This is a significant milestone in the projects history. Construction work on the site started in January this year, and we are happy with progress to date. The way is now clear for work to start on the main development next month.

The RRR facility is scheduled to begin operating in 2011. Total construction costs are £350 million.
