Isle of Man's energy-from-waste facility starts up

SITA started processing the Isle of Man's municipal waste at its newly built incinerator on 17 August. The facility at Richmond Hill will process all the island's municipal waste, around 60,000 tonnes per year. It will also generate 6.8MW of electricity, around 8% of the island's needs.

Aker Kvaerner, the engineering firm, has now started work on a secondary incinerator that will take around 5,000 tonnes of clinical, animal and oil wastes per year.

The incinerator, Sita's fourth in the UK, was awarded funding in 2000 as part of a 25-year contract with the island's legislature (ENDS Report 309, p 18 ).
