Energy from Waste/FCC Environment Industry Site Tour

Energy from Waste (EfW) technology emerged as the solution to Lincolnshire’s waste problem. The site opened in 2014 and provides a sustainable, safe and affordable waste treatment solution and allows energy to be produced from waste which isn’t recycled or composted. The plant produces enough electricity for 26,500 homes. The ash is hauled off site for road building across the UK and any metals recovered are sent for recycling. FCC Environment are keen to talk to businesses about the opportunity to use the residual heat.
