Period of growth in waste and energy development is celebrated at WRG and FCC

WRG is celebrating the outcomes of an 18-month drive to enhance its portfolio of more sustainable and efficient waste management and renewable energy generation options.

A renewed focus away from disposal activity has seen the business successfully introduce a range of new waste treatment and energy initiatives, some of which where be showcased at the recent RWM with CIWM Exhibition, at the NEC, Birmingham.

The starting point for these new approaches was last year’s Recycling Waste World National Energy from Waste conference in February 2010 at which WRG unveiled plans to introduce wind turbine energy generation on both its closed and operational landfill sites.

Planning committee approvals have already been received for the installation of two turbines at each of two sites in the East Riding of Yorkshire – Carnaby and Gallymoor – with a total capacity of up to 6MW of electricity.

Further wind farm planning applications have also been submitted for a total of 14 large turbines at three other sites, and for single turbines at five other sites. A significant number of other projects are at the pre-planning stage.
