Viridor starts Oxfordshire consultation

Viridor is proposing to build an energy-from-waste plant on its existing landfill and recycling site outside Ardley, Oxfordshire, and has started a community and stakeholder consultation process.

The proposed facility would be used to treat Oxfordshires residual waste and recover up to 300,000 tonnes of waste a year to produce electricity.

Oxfordshire County Council invited Viridor to submit a detailed solution for its long-term residual waste treatment contract in February 2008, along with one other possible supplier with a site in the south of the county. The council invited bids as part of a strategy to dispose of residual waste during the next 25 years.

Viridor regional communications manager Victor Perez-Mares said: We believe that it is important to engage with the local community and stakeholders, so that people have every opportunity to understand our proposals, to ask questions and to share their views.

Viridor has now developed its outline proposals which cover the design, build, finance and operation of the facility.

The successful bidder will start operations by the end of 2012 at the earliest.
