Energy-from-Waste (EfW) facilities in the UK, although facing development obstacles and planning issues in particular, will inevitably become the base solution for the processing of waste. There is now a momentum to construct more EfW plants in the UK.

Date and Time

Organised by the Merseyside and West Cheshire local network.

About this event


David Chance, Covanta Energy.

The talk will consider the general issues associated with the development of EfW Facilities. The technical solutions, environmental options and the process performance of these facilities will be described and discussed. EfW facilities have a reputation for poor power generation efficiency, but the latest designs can yield impressive efficiencies. The trials and tribulations and process effects of incorporating CHP will also be discussed.
