Approved plans for CHP / Waste-to-Energy Gasification facility in East London

Waste management company has received planning permission to develop a 15MW waste-to-energy gasification facility at a site in Dagenham Docks, East London.

The plant is expected to treat 120,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste each year and produce enough renewable electricity to power 31,500 households in the Barking and Dagenham area, as well as providing heat, cooling and power to other businesses occupying the Sustainable Industries Park site.

The merchant gasification facility will be used primarily to treat commercial waste arisings in the region. The plant is expected to undergo commissioning in 2012, with the aim of being operational by 2013.

The UK CHP Development Tool is the latest version of the map, originally developed as a tool aimed at assisting power station developers consider the opportunities for supplying heat and development of combined heat and power (CHP) as required under planning policy. However, it can also be used by both small and large organisations to help identify the locations where the supply of CHP heat would have the greatest potential, and therefore the largest positive environmental impact.
