The Edmonton ERF

Work has begun to replace an Energy from Waste (EfW) facility in Edmonton, London with a combined heat and power plant.

The current EfW facility has generated electricity for over 45 years and reached the end of its useful life.

A decision was made by the North London Waste Authority (NLWA) to replace it with an Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) which can supply heat and power while improving waste management onsite.

The site, expected to become operational in 2025, will include a reuse and recycling centre open to the public and a recycling and fuel preparation facility.

A community liaison group has been put together to update nearby residents on the project plans and raise any issues.

Construction will take place from 8am to 6pm on weekdays and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays.

Clyde Loakes, chair of the NLWA, said: “This is a momentous time for North London Waste Authority. The Project is pivotal for creating a more efficient solution to our waste that will better serve our residents. We are excited to start putting plans into action for a sustainable future of waste in north London.”

The North London Waste Authority (NLWA) is made up of seven north London boroughs (Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest).
