ICE storm over EfW plant

The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) has attacked the Government for dithering over a £100 million energy-from-waste plant in London.
The plant at Belvedere in Bexley would convert up to 585,000 tonnes of the capital's waste per year into electricity for 66,000 homes and has received the planning officer's support.
However, Trade and Industry Secretary Patricia Hewitt has yet to decide on whether to give the plant the go-ahead.
ICE waste management board vice-chairman Nigel Mattravers said of the situation: "The amount of waste produced in London is growing by more than the national average of 3% per year. We at ICE would like the Government to explain how London is expected to deal with its waste if facilities like this are not going to be introduced."
