In practice: Gatwick Airport’s ‘world-first’ waste management plant

28th March 2017

Gatwick's pioneering energy-from-waste plant represents a huge step forward for sustainable aviation. Find out how it works, who was involved and the key results the facility is driving in this new 'in practice' case study.

Gatwick’s brand new waste management plant, delivered in partnership with DHL Supply Chain, not only allows the airport to process high-risk Category 1 airline waste safely on-site, it can also convert it – along with all other organic waste from the airport – into energy to power itself and, eventually, provide heat for the nearby North Terminal.

In this three-page case study, edie breaks down the key facts and stats behind the project, and gives you everything you need to know about how and why Gatwick and DHL have taken airline waste into their own hands.
