Welsh energy from waste plant cancelled by Covanta

Developer Covanta has cancelled its plans to construct a 77MW energy from waste plant costing £400M in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales.

Covanta said the region’s local authorities have adopted policies to sell non-recyclable waste to a number of smaller waste facilities rather than one large one, meaning Covanta’s planned plant would be rendered “unviable”.

“The local authorities have adopted a fragmented approach to dealing with residual waste,” said a Covanta statement. “This makes the plant unviable. We have therefore decided to terminate the planning process and concentrate on our other UK projects.”
