Trident Park Energy Recovery Facility in Cardiff is now only a few months away from completion.
Once fully operational the facility will be handling 350,000 tonnes of residual waste, or post-recycling waste, per year, generating 28MW of electricity - enough to power around 50,000 households. 172,000 tonnes of that waste will be coming from five Councils that make up the Prosiect Gwyrdd partnership: Cardiff, Newport, Monmouthshire, Vale of Glamorgan and Caerphilly.
