Grundon Lakeside Energy From Waste
As a leading supplier of integrated waste management solutions, Grundon was quick to recognise the significance of energy from waste, both as an alternative to diminishing landfill void and as a sustainable option for energy recovery.
Energy from Waste complements Grundonâ€™s existing Material Recovery Facilities for recycling, offering the Best Practical Environmental Option (BPEO) for minimisation and treatment of residual waste. Our joint venture Lakeside Energy from Waste (EfW) plant at Colnbrook was handed over by the contractor in January 2010 and is now fully operational. The plant is capable of recovering energy from over 410,000 tonnes of residual waste per year from local authorities and businesses. Lakeside EfW generate 37 MW of electricity. A small amount is used to power the plant itself while the vast majority is exported to the National Grid - enough to meet the domestic needs of c.50,000 homes, more than the population of Slough.
