The Rookery South Energy Recovery Facility will process waste that cannot be reused or recycled to generate clean energy
Covanta and Veolia are partnering to develop the Rookery South Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) at Rookery South Pit, a former brick clay extraction pit, near Stewartby in Bedfordshire. The ERF is a sustainable alternative to landfill, using household, commercial and non-hazardous industrial residual waste, left after recycling and composting efforts, as fuel to generate clean electricity. The facility will provide a vital outlet for the sustainable disposal of over 500,000 tonnes of residual waste per year and will generate over 60 megawatts of low carbon energy - enough electricity to meet the needs of 75,000 homes.
