Council gives consent for Viridor AD facility

Viridor Waste Management has received planning consent from the London Borough of Sutton to move ahead with the development of an anaerobic digestion facility in Beddington.

The planning consent will allow the development of the site to provide additional recycling and recovery facilities. The anaerobic digestion plant will extend the capacity of the renewable energy power plant already on site and re-phase landfill operations.

Viridor external affairs manager Dan Cooke said: We are very pleased to have been granted consent for these leading-edge proposals. Beddington is an important integrated waste management site south of the River Thames and within the M25, operating for the long term.

These plans have been designed to meet the needs of our local authority and other customers and will serve to further improve essential waste and recycling services for the area. The decision follows an extensive local consultation exercise and well continue to work closely with the local community.

The anaerobic digestion plant will be designed to treat and recycle municipal solid waste from households and commercial and industrial businesses in the surrounding area. The plant will be capable of handling 75,000 tonnes per year and will enable local authorities to meet their obligations under the Governments landfill diversion targets.
