3 Years Of Energy From Waste in Gloucestershire
The Gloucestershire energy from waste facility has been operating for over 3 years since the beginning of operations in 2019. Since this time the facility has treated over 560,000 tonnes of rubbish and exported over 380,00 MWh of electricity to the National Grid. As well as this, the facility has also recovered over 125,000 tonnes of materials for recycling.
The facility has been used for more than just energy though as it’s also been used to educate local communities and other groups interested in sustainable waste management. The visitors centre opened its booking planner once again in May 2022 and was fully booked months in advance. They have also held open days to show visitors how the facility operated. One visitor commented: “the tour was excellent, really informative, and our tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful.”
A cabinet member for environment and planning at Gloucestershire City Council said: “It’s great that Javelin Park has been in operation for 3 years. During this time, the plant has generated much-needed energy and has all but eliminated the use of landfill in waste treatment in Gloucestershire. This is very positive news for the county.”
It is extremely important that all waste gets disposed of in eco-friendly ways to ensure the best possible outcome for our planet. Facilities like Javelin Park improve our environment and help prevent the acceleration of climate change. Be sure to check what option is best for your waste and always hire a reputable company who will dispose of your waste using sustainable processes.
