North London Waste Authority (NLWA) will be holding a market information day on 18 June for work on the North London Heat and Power Project (NLHPP) at Edmonton EcoPark – a 16 hectare site in the Upper Lee Valley.
NLWA is responsible for the management and disposal of waste collected by seven North London boroughs (Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest). It will build:
- an Energy Recovery Facility (ERF), to be located in the north of the site, which will treat up to 700,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste a year ;
- a Resource Recovery Facility (RRF), to be located in the south of the site, which is where bulky waste will be separated for recycling, and will also be the location of a recycling centre for the public and businesses;
- demolition and removal of the existing Energy from Waste (EfW) facility, which is due to reach the end of its operational life around 2025.
- EcoPark House, located near the River Lee Navigation, which will contain office accommodation and a visitors’ centre where people can find out more about recycling, waste, heat, and power.
