Composting Plant

High Heavens ABPR Composting Plant
  • The plant was constructed, and is owned by,
    Buckinghamshire County Council
  • The High Heavens plant is operated by Terra Eco
    Systems on behalf of Buckinghamshire County
    Council
  • The plant is designed to process 40,000 tonnes of
    kerbside collected household waste per annum but
    its present capacity is approximately half of
    this.
  • It has been in service since August, 2004

The National Waste Strategy
  • The principal Waste Management policy document
    currently in place is Waste Strategy 2000 (for
    England and Wales) which was published by the
    DETR in May 2000.
  • This Document is expected to guide Waste
    Management Policy and Legislation beyond 2015 .

The National Waste Strategy
  • To encourage more efficient use of resources, the
    Government expects value to be recovered (either
    by recycling, composting or energy recovery) from
    40 of municipal waste by 2005 (rising to 67 by
    2015).
  • Within this particular target, the Government has
    set discrete targets for recycling and
    composting to ensure that this particular form of
    waste management has a significant role to play
    in meeting recovery targets
  • 25 of Household waste to be recycled or
    composted by 2005
  • 30 of Household waste to be recycled or
    composted by 2010
  • 33 of Household waste to be recycled or
    composted by 2015

Instruments for change
  • The Waste Strategy 2000 (England Wales)

This Strategy Document sets mandatory targets for
the reduction of biodegradable waste that is sent
to landfill in line with European Union Council
Directive 1999/31/EC. Biodegradable Waste is
organic municipal waste which decays and produces
methane (an inflammable gas that is released into
the atmosphere and contributes to global
warming) and a liquid that can pollute water in
the ground and on the surface.

Landfill Reductions
The mandatory targets for the reduction of
biodegradable waste that is sent to landfill are
as follows -
  • 75 of the amount produced in 1995 by 2010
  • 50 of the amount produced in 1995 by 2013
  • 35 of the amount produced in 1995 by 2020

The anticipated effect of the Directive for the
UK Landfill Industry is indicated on the
following slide.

Waste In Buckinghamshire
  • Buckinghamshire currently produces approximately
    250,000 tonnes of municipal waste per annum
  • Buckinghamshire currently sends 190,000 tonnes of
    municipal waste to landfill (approximately 77 of
    the total).
  • Buckinghamshire currently recycles 57,000 tonnes
    of municipal waste (approximately 23 of the
    total)
  • These figures show that Buckinghamshire performs
    better than the National Average.

The Challenge
  • Biodegradable Municipal Waste (BMW) production is
    expected to continue to grow by approximately 3
    every year.
  • The availability of landfill for BMW will reduce
    by 65 over the period 1999 to 2020 in accordance
    with the EU Directive.
  • The required recovery of BMW after permitted
    landfilling will rise from 72,600 tonnes at 2010
    to 163,700 tonnes in 2020 (an increase of 125
    over the decade).
  • The projected shortfall between the amount of BMW
    which can realistically be recycled or composted
    under existing schemes and that which should be
    diverted from landfill grows by some 440 to
    108,900 tonnes at 2019/2020

    Buckinghamshire 2001 - 2021

19
And so..
  • If Government Targets are to be met it will be
    necessary to rapidly expand existing recycling
    and composting facilities.
  • It is Government Policy that Waste should, as far
    as possible, be managed close to its origin so as
    to minimise public nuisance and collateral
    pollution from road transport.
  • Local Authorities face severe financial penalties
    if they fail to meet Government Targets.
  • There is often public resistance to the siting of
    waste processing and composting facilities close
    to urban areas.

The next few years will be an interesting time
for the Waste Management industry!!
