Energy-from-waste facilities play a key role in sustainable waste management in the UK, diverting waste away from landfill and instead using it as a valuable source of energy.

SSE Thermal has entered into an agreement with Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) to jointly develop a new energy-from-waste project on the Slough Trading Estate in Slough, Berkshire. Energy-from-waste specialist Hitachi Zosen Inova (HZI) has been appointed as the EPC contractor for the Slough Multifuel project, with construction commencing in early 2021.

SSE Thermal previously co-developed and constructed the Ferrybridge Multifuel 1 and Ferrybridge Multifuel 2 energy-from-waste facilities in West Yorkshire, which were sold to First Sentier Investors in January 2021.
