what is energy from waste?

Energy from Waste (or EfW) is the generation of partly renewable electricity and/or usable heat from non-recyclable waste that would otherwise go to landfill in the UK, or to other countries as ‘Refuse Derived Fuel.’

Like any power plant, the heat from the burning waste is used to boil water and generate steam which turns a turbine to drive a generator. Efficiencies can be increased if some of the steam can be used for heating, for example for industrial processes such as cooking food.

project overview

project overview

UK-based company MVV Environment Ltd plans to develop a new energy from waste combined heat and power facility generating electricity and steam on land at Algores Way, Wisbech. If successful, a new company, to be called ‘MVV Environment Medworth,’ will be looking to employ local people to help build, operate and maintain the facility.

The proposed energy from waste combined heat and power facility will divert over half a million tonnes of non-recyclable waste from landfill every year, generating over 50 megawatts of electricity and offering the opportunity to supply steam to local factories.

liaison committee

join the liaison committee

It is important for us to establish constructive two-way communication with you, the public. One way that we have successfully achieved this at our other facilities is via a local liaison committee.

We would like to invite you to sign-up for regular updates and meetings with us. Whether these need to remain online for now, or can be safely held in person, all necessary Covid-secure measures will be taken.

If you are interested in joining, please feel free to speak to our staff at an upcoming exhibition. Alternatively, you can contact us by phone, email or register your interest via the 'get in touch' form.
