Energy Recovery Facilities (ERF)

Renewable, sustainable energy

Energy recovery is an important source of renewable, sustainable energy and a vital link in the waste management chain. Veolia's Energy Recovery Facilities (ERFs) complement integrated local waste strategies, helping to meet recovery and carbon emission targets.

Waste reduction, recycling and materials recovery operations are the first priority for our integrated contracts. Once we have optimised these operations, it makes sense to recover energy from the remaining waste where possible.

Our ERFs reduce the use of fossil fuels, cut emissions of greenhouse gases and reduce dependence on landfill. Engaging closely with residents near the site, we help Local Authorities to secure planning permissions and to break down the barriers to establishing this kind of technology. 

In 2013, our eight Energy Recovery Facilities processed 1.8 million tonnes of municipal waste, exporting 927,026 MWh of electricity powering 250,000 homes in the UK.

 

Clearly safe and environmentally sound

Our ERFs are constructed and operate within the highest standards of environmental care, meeting or exceeding emissions legislation. During the planning and build process and beyond, we conduct a carefully targeted public information campaign to make this clear.  Through face-to-face, online and print communications, we will talk to residents and other stakeholders and counter any outdated misconceptions about energy recovery with clearly presented facts.
