Veolia cements relationship with Hertfordshire County Council - 13 September 2016"Veolia has just signed a 30 year contract with Hertfordshire County Council worth £1 billion reinforcing its partnership with this county north of London. This project will recover energy from residual waste.The energy recovery facility proposed by Veolia will make a major contribution towards meeting ambitious targets for waste management at the national level. It will generate up to 33.5 megawatts (MW) of electricity from the 350,000 tonnes of potential residual ‘black bin’ waste (that cannot be reused, recycled or composted) each year."["Subject to planning permission, the construction work of the energy recovery facility will start in 2017, and will be operational in 2020."]
Looks like HCC is hellbent on doing a deal with Veolia - no matter how much it costs us.
Fascinating - how HCC has signed a 30-year, £1 billion pound contract and not made any public comment about it (Veolia would have been legally obliged under Stock Exchange rules to issue a statement). Perhaps they are trying to keep this on a back-burner
UK incinerator plans? They're just rubbish - Sunday 10 March 2013"A wave of new publicly-funded incinerators being built to burn rubbish could be mothballed before they are even turned on, amid claims there will not be enough waste to fuel them."http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/green-living/uk-incinerator-plans-theyre-just-rubbish-8527830.html
UK may have to import rubbish for incinerators - Saturday 31 July 2010"Waste Britain: Improved recycling rates mean that we may not have enough garbage to feed planned new plants "http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/green-living/uk-may-have-to-import-rubbish-for-incinerators-2040614.html
UK 2030 Recycling Already Limited to 66% – and Falling - November 2014 "Eunomia’s Seventh Residual Waste Infrastructure Review, out today, shows that the UK has more incineration capacity either currently operational or being built than is needed if the country is to hit the 70% recycling target being discussed by the European Commission...The report’s findings indicate that if infrastructure construction and waste exports both proceed as expected, the UK’s residual waste treatment capacity will exceed supply in 2017/18. If export of residual waste is stopped altogether, and no further capacity is built other than that which is already in construction, overcapacity will be reached in 2023/24. In both cases it is assumed that the UK makes steady progress towards current and prospective statutory targets for recycling."http://www.eunomia.co.uk/uk-2030-recycling-already-limited-to-66-and-falling/
Waste site still not suitableIt is not surprising that Herts County Council is struggling to gain support for its joint project with Veolia to burn Hertfordshire's waste and more besides in Hoddesdon [Welwyn Hatfield Times, September 9]
