Thames Gateway Waste to Energy Facility, Dagenham

A waste-to-energy plant in Dagenham that uses the innovative RODECS process patented by Chinook Sciences. The plant will export 14MW to the grid, sufficient to power 32,000 homes.

The layout of facilities on the site has been determined by combining the constraints imposed by the National Grid overhead power lines that cross the site with the requirements of the Chinook process and the available points of access to the site. Segregation of waste vehicles and other users of the site has, for reasons of safety, also been an important design driver.
