Green light for Grundon plant

West Sussex County Council’s planning committee has granted Grundon Waste Management planning permission for its new Circular Technology Park at Ford in West Sussex.

The new facility will process up to 200,000 tonnes of materials a year and house an MRF capable of recycling 60,000 tonnes of paper, glass and metal.

An advanced thermal treatment facility will convert residual waste that cannot be recycled or recovered into energy for 29,000 homes.

The company said that the diversion of waste resources from landfill will prevent the equivalent of 28,500 tonnes per annum of greenhouse gas emissions, such as carbon dioxide and methane, being generated – a figure which is comparable to the emissions of 13,000 cars being removed from the roads each year.

Grundon’s deputy chairman Neil Grundon said: “We are delighted with the announcement that the development of Grundon’s new Circular Technology Park can now take place. We strongly believe that the new facility will champion the recycling and recovery technologies.

 “Our new site at Ford will provide a facility that embraces these guiding principles and help West Sussex to ‘close the loop’ in the circle and achieve its target of zero waste to landfill by 2030.”
