Judge backs Viridor EfW plant

Lincoln EfW to power heating network

Lincolnshire County Council has secured a £80,400 grant to get a new low carbon heating network off the ground.

The network was awarded funding by the Heat Network Development Unit, a team set up by the Department of Energy and Climate Change.

Lincolnshire’s Energy from Waste Facility has been operational since 2014 and is now processing 150,000 tonnes of residual waste every year.

The facility recovers energy from the waste and uses it to produce electricity which is fed back into the national grid.

The grant will pay for expert studies and consultations into what district heating can be achieved at the facility, and the areas the network could take in.
