The island’s Energy from Waste (EfW) facility is a power station that produces electricity using household waste as the fuel instead of using fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil. The facility will treat 60,000 tonnes of municipal waste in the primary incinerator, and up to 5,000 tonnes of clinical, animal, and oil waste in the secondary incinerator. This will produce 10% of the island’s electricity.
The facility was commissioned to deal with the island’s waste by following the European Best Practice namely to minimise, recycle, and recover energy through EfW, minimising the amount of waste being sent to landfill. The plant is run by SITA (Isle of Man), a subsidiary of Europe’s largest waste management company.
The visit is limited to 20 people so book early to avoid disappointment.
