An investment of £2.9M will be made into the waste infrastructure of London, it has been announced.
Green Tech will receive £1.9M funding from the London Waste and Recycling Board (LWARB), which will provide the firm with support for a 25,000t plastics recycling facility in the London Borough of Enfield.
LWARB is also contributing £1.9M towards TEG Environmental’s 30,000t anaerobic digestion (AD) plant, the first to be developed in the capital.
The plant will be situated at the London Sustainable Industries Park in Dagenham, a site that is being developed to house the UK’s largest concentration of environmental industries and technologies.
LWRB chair James Cleverly said: “These are great projects for LWARB to invest in, not only are they diverting waste from landfill, and closing the gap on the waste infrastructure requirements in the capital, they are a first for London in terms of the technology being used in both facilities.”
Other investments made by LWARB into waste infrastructure projects include the Biossence gasifier and Bywaters’ MRF, both in east London. The statutory waste body is expected to make further funding announcements early next year.
