If you’re looking to get in the property ladder in 2020, it might at times seem like a bit of a pipe dream.

Wheelabrator Technologies have announced it will no longer proceed with its plans for the proposed Wheelabrator Harewood waste-to-energy project.

9, a:1:{i:0;s:8:”defaults”;}, Wheelabrator Technologies have announced it will no longer proceed with its plans for the proposed Wheelabrator Harewood waste-to-energy project., US-owned Wheelabrator Technologies have recently announced it will no longer proceed with its plans for the proposed Wheelabrator Harewood waste-to-energy project in Hampshire, according to Let’s Recycle.

The proposed waste-to-energy facility would have taken 500,000 tonnes of residual household and business waste away from landfill or export to Europe per year, and recovered enough renewable baseload energy from non-recyclable waste to provide power to 110,000 homes in the UK.

Commenting on the decision, Wheelabrator Technologies Vice President for Business Development, Paul Green, said: “The UK waste-to-energy market is extremely buoyant with significant capacity gaps remaining in the residual waste management infrastructure. Wheelabrator is well-placed to address this capacity gap and provide sustainable waste management solutions with a number of live projects across the UK.

“Having undertaken a strategic review of the wide range of opportunities in our current pipeline, we have decided to focus our efforts on further advanced waste-to-energy projects, and as such, will no longer continue to invest in the development of the Wheelabrator Harewood waste-to-energy facility.”

Wheelabrator is focussing on further waste-to-energy projects and thanked all participants who provided feedback as part of recent community consultations.

Wheelabrator’s advanced waste-to-energy development projects include Wheelabrator Kemsley North in Sittingbourne, Kent, located adjacent to Wheelabrator’s Kemsley (K3) facility, and Skelton Grange in Yorkshire, less than 15 miles from Multifuel Energy Limited (MEL) Ferrybridge 1 and Ferrybridge 2, which are part of the MEL joint venture with SSE.

“Wheelabrator has an active pipeline of other waste-to-energy projects and expects to be able to announce further progress on these opportunities soon.”

Wheelabrator is an industry leader in the safe and eco-friendly conversion of municipal solid waste and other renewable waste fuels into clean energy. They have recently achieved major milestones in North Wales and West Yorkshire with two new waste-to-energy facilities, Wheelabrator Parc Adfer and Ferrybridge 2 reaching full commercial operations at the end of 2019.

Once Wheelabrator Kemsley becomes operational in Q2 2020, Wheelabrator will have the combined capacity to treat over 2.2 million tonnes (2.4 million tons) of residual waste, capable of powering around 500,000 UK homes and businesses each and every year.

Wheelabrator Technologies state they remain committed to developing, delivering and operating waste-to-energy facilities capable of diverting residual waste from landfill, preventing the need for export of waste to Europe, reducing greenhouse gases, recycling metals that would otherwise go to landfill and generating clean, renewable baseload energy.
