The benefits

The development of Wheelabrator Parc Adfer will support:

  • UK Government and European best practice targets to recover energy from post-recycled material for use in heat and power schemes
  • Reduce greenhouse gases by preventing methane release from landfill and reducing the need for fossil fuels
  • Reduced reliance on fossil fuels
  • Recycling of metals from ash
  • Ash which can be used as a replacement for primary aggregates in the construction sector
  • Use of materials that might otherwise go to landfill or export to Europe
  • Creation of hundreds of construction jobs and an estimated 35 new full time roles when operational
  • Additional employment and supply chain opportunities for the area
