Environmental Permit

Wheelabrator Parc Adfer was granted an environmental permit by Natural Resources Wales in October 2015.

The environmental permit places strict limitations on the types of waste that can be treated at the facility and establishes the permissible air quality limits

Waste-to-energy facilities are required to comply with strict air quality limits established by the European Waste Incineration Directive. In addition, waste-to-energy is recognised internationally as a greenhouse gas mitigating technology.
