Oxfordshire EfW plant milestone

A major milestone has been reached in the construction of an energy-from-waste facility in Oxfordshire.

Excavations have been completed to create a 7,200 cu m bunker, which will hold up to 5,000 tonnes of residual waste awaiting conversion into energy.

Consortium CNIM-Clugston Oxfordshire is building the plant for Oxfordshire County Council and waste management firm Viridor.

Viridor chief executive Colin Drummond said: “Our EfW facility will help the council achieve its ambitious targets and continue to deliver cost-effective services for its residents while producing valuable renewable energy for homes and businesses via the National Grid.”

The EfW facility will have the capacity to process 300,000 tonnes of residual, non-recyclable waste per year.

Completion is expected in 2014.
