UK: Permit for Hoddesdon EfW plant

England’s Environment Agency last week granted Veolia an environmental permit for its Rye House Energy Recovery Facility in Hoddesdon.

The 350,000t/yr two-line plant, which will have a capacity of 33.5MWe with 30.2MWe going to the grid, is awaiting a final decision on its planning consent by the government, which is currently due by 7 May.

However, the government has missed deadlines before. In 2014, Norfolk County Council abandoned a 25-year, €604m waste contract with Cory Environmental and Wheelabrator, after the government failed to come to a decision on the project.
