Beddington Energy Recovery Facility (ERF)

Construction of the £205m state-of-the-art Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) at the existing landfill and recycling site in Beddington, Sutton, commenced in 2015.

The facility provides the South London Waste Partnership and businesses with a safe and cost-effective alternative to landfill. It will also bring forward the completion and restoration of the existing landfill into green spaces and wildlife habitats.

The ERF has been designed to process around 275,000 tonnes of non-hazardous residual waste a year. Wider environmental benefits will include the landfill diversion of up to 95 per cent of waste delivered to the facility and the generation of up to 210GWh of electricity, which will power the facility itself and supply over 22MW to the National Grid. It could also provide heat for local users.
