ERF plant work underway for county

Construction has begun on a 300,000-tonne Energy Recovery Facility in Staffordshire.

Specialist contractor CNIM Clugston is building the facility for waste management firm Veolia Environmental Services at Four Ashes in the south of the county.

Veolia is working with Staffordshire County Council as part of the local authority’s attempts to save £250m over 25 years. The ERF will generate enough energy to power 30,000 homes from the waste left after recycling has been maximised.

Veolia Environmental Services chief operating officer Tom Spaul said: “The start of work on site was an exciting moment for the company. 

“We have dedicated significant resources to developing the most efficient, cost effective, sustainable and environmentally sophisticated solution to Staffordshire’s residual waste problems.”
