Materials recovery facility to process 330,000 tonnes of waste from the London area
LOCATED at Powerday’s former waste transfer station in the Brimsdown area of Enfield, the new materials recovery facility (MRF) is expected to process 330,000 tonnes of construction and commercial waste per annum, producing high-quality recycled materials and renewable fuel.
The company has grown significantly in recent years and now has a turnover exceeding £40 million. Powerday say up to 60 new jobs will be created at the new plant, delivering an environmental and economic boost to Enfield, as well as providing a welcome addition to waste processing capacity in the English capital.
According to Mick Crossan, chairman of Powerday, the MRF provides greater options for clients and a further high-volume production site for refuse derived fuels (RDF), making it an attractive collection point for RDF collectors currently exporting to Europe and Scandinavia via the London ports.
The design/installation of the recycling facility was carried out by Powerday’s engineering partner, Turmec Engineering.
Jim Craig, commercial director for Powerday, said: ‘This has been an exciting project for Powerday and me personally. The partnership between ourselves and our contractors, with the assistance of Enfield Council, has contributed to this significant development built on time and within budget.’
