Veolia has secured three contracts for the sustainable treatment of domestic and business recycling and waste from Westminster City Council. The residual waste will generate electricity and heat at the South East London Combined Heat and Power (SELCHP) facility.

The three contracts worth a total of £71m are for dry, mixed and source segregated recycling food waste treatment and the treatment of residual, bulky waste and street sweepings.

Mixed recyclates will be taken to Veolia’s MRF in Southwark, where they will be sorted and separated for reprocessing. Food waste will be treated in partnership with Biogen at its anaerobic digestion facility in Baldock, Hertfordshire.

CIWM Journal reports that residual waste will be recovered into energy at South East London Combined Heat and Power facility, which is operated by Veolia.

The waste will be used to create power for the National Grid and heating and hot water for local homes.

Estelle Brachlianoff, Senior Executive Vice President for Veoila UK and Ireland – “I believe we have been successful in securing these contracts because we have the capability to provide innovative solutions that allow us to transform the materials we handle into valuable resources.”
