Urbaser Ltd. and Balfour Beatty are in a joint venture to manage Gloucestershire’s municipal waste in a way that is beneficial to the local community, economy, and environment under a contract with Gloucestershire County Council established in 2016.
The Gloucestershire Energy from Waste facility is designed to significantly reduce the amount of municipal waste landfilled in Gloucestershire by using tried and tested technology.
Aside from safely dealing with residual waste, which cannot readily be recycled or composted, the facility will generate the equivalent electricity to power 25,000 homes, and will contribute to Gloucestershire’s renewable energy production.
The facility will divert over 90% of the County Council’s residual waste from landfill, preventing methane production, and producing sustainable aggregates. There will be a net reduction in CO2 equivalent emissions through running the facility as compared with continued landfilling.
We appreciate that not everyone owns this level of PPE and we are looking to have some items available to borrow for the tour. Upon booking please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let Elaine know what PPE you have and what you would need to borrow so that we can consider this further.
