Owned and operated by FCC Environment, a leading waste and resource management company, Kent Enviropower’s Energy from Waste plant at Allington recovers energy from non-hazardous waste streams.
And on an incredible scale!
The Energy from Waste section of the facility can process up to 550,000 tonnes of suitable waste per year, generating up to 263 million kilowatts of electricity every year.
The equivalent fuel that would be required to generate this power is 200,000 tonnes of coal or a super tanker of oil.
The energy converted is used to light and heat up to 60,000 homes across the UK.
And it is from stuff we throw away.
