Energy from waste

​Energy from waste

Household and commercial rubbish that has not been separated for recycling is delivered to the Energy from Waste plant at La Collette for processing. This forms part of the island's solid waste strategy which delivers a partnership between local energy recovery and recycling.

Solid Waste Strategy

How does the plant work?

In basic terms, an Energy from Waste plant burns rubbish and uses the heat from the fire to generate steam. This steam is then used to drive a turbine which generates electricity which is sold to the Jersey Electricity Company (JEC).

Monitoring the plant

The Planning and Environment Department granted a Waste Management Licence on 15 December 2010 to the plant operator, the Department for Infrastructure. This brings the operation of the plant under the regulatory control of the Waste Management (Jersey) Law 2005, for which the Planning and Environment Department is the regulator. The plant is constantly monitored to ensure it operates in accordance with the licence and EU air quality standards.
