Viridor given go-ahead for Oxfordshire EfW

Viridor has been granted planning permission for its energy from waste (EfW) plant in Ardley, north Oxfordshire.

Approved by Oxfordshire County Council’s planning and regulation committee, the proposed EfW facility will treat 300,000 tonnes of residual, non-recyclable waste. It will generate up to 24MW of electricity to be supplied to the national grid.

Viridor project manager Robert Ryan said: “We are extremely pleased with the committee’s decision as our proposals have been in line with national and local waste management and planning policies from the outset.

“We now look forward to signing the contract with the council so that we can continue moving forward with the delivery of a first-class residual treatment facility that Oxfordshire residents can be proud of.”

In September, the Environment Agency approved Viridor’s application for an environmental permit for the facility.
