Our project in Rivenhall, Essex, began in July 2021.
The Rivenhall IWMF and Energy Centre aims to convert 595,000 tonnes of waste through sustainable waste management. With the increasing demand for raw materials generating energy from waste is more essential than ever. The specialist team at the Rivenhall IWMF and Energy Centre will be working diligently to use waste in an energy-efficient manner to contribute towards developing a circular economy and resolving part of the raw materials shortage.
Through improved recycling and the maximum recovery of energy from waste at Rivenhall IWMF and Energy Centre, we can make a positive impact on the environment and take steps towards creating a sustainable circular economy, reducing the demand for the harvesting of more valuable raw materials.
At the Rivenhall IWMF and Energy Centre, we will break down residual waste into its original components and from this, produce clean, affordable energy. During the waste treatment process, we generate energy that is released as steam and electricity. This is harnessed to use at our own facilities as well as supply neighbouring residential areas and businesses.
At the Rivenhall IWMF and Energy Centre, in May 2022, Indaver opened an on-site Information Hub for the local community to visit and learn more about our progress and plans for both the IWMF and adjoining Woodhouse Farm heritage site.
We continue to make local connections so that we can support the surrounding community. As part of our commitment to invest in the local community, we are prioritising education, outreach and communication. We want to raise awareness of the climate emergency and how we can make a positive difference by working together.
Get in touch if you would like to use the Information Hub for community meetings or if you are interested in participating in an Open Day event supported by Indaver.
We have hosted a couple of Open Day events so far in conjunction with local enterprises and many more events are in planning for the coming period.
Woodhouse Farm was once brimming with activity; however, it has been left uninhabited over many years, meaning it has become derelict. Dating back to the 17th century, it holds historical secrets that are still being uncovered and preserved as the renovations continue. We plan to repair the site to its former glory and keep this valuable piece of heritage alive for the community to appreciate for years to come.
