Riverside Resource Recovery (RRR)
Energy from Waste Facility

The Riverside Energy from Waste facility at Belvedere in the London Borough of Bexley, is Cory Environmental's single most significant development project. The facility is an important strategic river-served waste management facility for London, helping the capital to manage its own waste, keeping over 100,000 HGVs off the capital's congested roads each year and making a real contribution to London's ability to meet its landfill diversion targets.

Cory's Riverside Resource Recovery facility is now fully operational, following successful completion of our commissioning and trials period in May 2013. The Environment Agency has granted the facility R1 certification; this means that the facility is classified as a recovery operation. The facility processes 670,000 tonnes of waste from across London and exports c.470,000 to 480,000 Mega Watt hours of electricity to the National Grid (enough to power c.100,000 homes).

Cory’s river operations are a key aspect of the process for Riverside, with over 85% of the waste being brought to the plant on barges along the River Thames. The Incinerator Bottom Ash (IBA) produced by Riverside is also taken away on the river to an IBA processing facility at Tilbury Docks.

Riverside was officially opened in spring 2012 by Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal.
