Plans revealed for a plant that could handle waste from 140,000 homes

food waste

Torfaen County Borough Council, Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council and Caerphilly County Borough Council, all from South Wales valley, are making efforts to build a plant to handle food and garden waste. The trio’s facility is expected to be functional by 2012, where 70% recycling and composting targets set by the assembly government for 2025 will be met.

The new waste plant will require £7 million for its completion. The location for the site is not yet finalized, but publicly owned land within the council areas is presently being considered to house the waste plant. These alternatives to find ways of reducing the food and garden waste that would else go into landfills will certainly save the environment.

The new plant will derive inspiration in its design from the assembly government’s preferred plant called as an anaerobic digester, which not only produces compost that can be used for agricultural purposes but also provides biogas that can be brought into use to generate electricity. The three council’s facility will harness enough energy to provide power to 1,000 homes.
