Further Information:

The Wardley Anaerobic Digestion facility will employ combined heat and power (CHP) units to generate heat and electricity from up to 70,000 tonnes of organic waste (source separated food waste, commercial and industrial waste and agricultural waste) per year.

The Wardley site provides a suitable location for the facility due to its flat topography, with suitable electricity and gas grid connection point, access to good transport links and industrial location.
