Viridor to build £100m EfW in Oxfordshire

Oxfordshire County Council has announced Viridor as its preferred bidder to treat the countys residual waste with a £100 million energy-from-waste facility.

Viridor is proposing to build and operate a hi-tech EfW with a capacity of 300,000 tonnes at its existing landfill and recycling site in Ardley, north Oxfordshire.

The plant will be capable of generating 24 MW of electricity and 95 per cent of the waste delivered to the facility will be waste that has been diverted from landfill.

Viridor managing director Mike Hellings said: We are proud to have been chosen by Oxfordshire, one of the countrys leading recycling authorities, as its preferred bidder. Our proposals have been designed to provide the council with a safe, robust and cost-effective solution to meet its needs and to complement its already successful recycling and waste prevention initiatives.

Between 38 and 42 permanent jobs will be created as a result of the new plant with more created in the construction process.
