dealing with waste today for a better tomorrow

The UK requires more renewable energy power stations
as old, fossil fuel facilities are being decommissioned.
Too much waste is still being sent to landfill or exported
overseas, when it could better be used as a fuel to
generate electricity and heat here in the UK.

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

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.
