E.ON (FWB: EOAN) and Viridor are in talks to develop a district heating network to work in conjunction with energy to waste plant that could service up to 50,000 homes in Cardiff in the UK.

Viridor run the plant at Cardiff’s Trident Park and both companies are consulting on the possibility of supplying buildings in central Cardiff with non-fossil fuel heating or cooling via its planned combined heat and power (CHP) facility.

The plant will be able to treat up to 350,000 tonnes of mostly residual household waste with some from local businesses.

The heat and high-grade steam would be expected to support a district heating network and add an additional 20 MW to the plant’s energy output”.
