The future of UK EfW Development
This month, Tolvik released their eighth annual report, ‘2021 UK Energy from Waste Statistics’. The report reveals EfW capacity is expected to grow from 14.9Mt/year of residual waste processed in 2021 to 19.4Mt/yr by 2026 but goes on to highlight signs of a likely slowdown in the development of UK EfW plants.
The report looks at EfW plants in the pipeline, stating that a number of projects post financial close have since ‘ceased being progressed, been cancelled and/or have been refused consent’ and ‘fewer new projects are now being actively brought forward’.
