The tenth most popular story of the year involved financial close of the Riverside 2 energy-from-waste project and also marked one million tonnes of new UK-based capacity getting over the line. 

The ninth most popular story of the year was EfW plant developer and operator Enfinium raising over capacity concerns about rival developer’s North Lincolnshire Green Energy Park EfW project. 

The eighth most popular story on the site was OCO giving an update on plans for its fourth air pollution control residue (APCr) processing facility as it also expands its current facilities.

The seventh most popular story on the site was infrastructure investor Bioenergy Infrastructure Group (BIG) launch of its Ince Bioenergy Carbon Capture and Storage project (InBECCS). 

The sixth most popular story of the year was Fortum revealing it was targeting building up to three further EfW plant projects in the UK. 

The fifth most popular story of the year was the decision by the owners to mothball the Malvern-based medical waste-processing plant 

The fourth most popular story in 2022 was the UK government revealing that several EfW projects and a biomass-processing facility has made it through its “eligibility criteria” for joining one of two confirmed carbon capture clusters in England.

The third most popular story was that France-based CNIM’s EfW building arm went into administration and it was exiting the sector. 

The second most popular story of 2022 was that the UK government would not be calling in the EMERGE EfW project, which is planned for the former coal-fired Ratcliffe-on-Soar site. 

The most popular story of the year again involved a project owned by BIG and was about the mothballing of its Hoddesdon-based EfW plant, which was also another blow for the UK’s beleaguered waste-gasification sector.
