North London waste body offers CCS contracts for Edmonton

Seven councils that are members of the North London Waste Authority (NLWA) have agreed to invest in initial services to develop carbon capture at their Edmonton EcoPark energy from waste plant and are looking for contractors for the initial project phases.
NLWA is constructing a new energy from waste facility as part of the North London Heat and Power Project, which will produce generate efficient, low-carbon heat for local homes as well as power.
It says developing carbon capture and storage solution would be a major technical undertaking involving engineering, planning, financing, collaboration and project management. NLWA has published three contract opportunities for the first stage of the work, which will last around two years and cost up to £2.5million:
Carbon Capture Project Engineering and Project Management
Planning and development of Environmental Statement
Financial and commercial modelling and business case development
The North London Waste Authority (NLWA) is the statutory joint waste authority for north London, one of six such authorities in England and it is responsible for the disposal of waste collected by the London Boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest.
Cllr Clyde Loakes, Chair of NLWA said, “installing carbon capture would make the facility carbon negative by the 2030s – actively taking CO2 out of the atmosphere to help speed London towards Net Zero. It would align the project with the objectives of the Paris Climate Agreement, the UK Climate Change Committee recommendations for waste management and the UK Government’s ambition for a net zero economy.”
