Suffolk energy-from-waste facility annual report 2021 published
SUEZ recycling and recovery UK and Suffolk County Council have been working in partnership for seven years, putting waste to good use in Suffolk.
In 2021, we put 291,609 tonnes of household waste left after recycling to good use, using it as a fuel to generate enough electricity to power 43,352 homes. This equates to a saving of 21,642 tonnes of fossil fuels, compared to the average natural gas power station.
Our visitor centre was closed for the year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In September, we took part in the national Heritage Open Days festival again, this time with two webinar events, where we were joined by over 75 live attendees.
Our health and safety track record remained excellent in 2021. In total, we delivered 3,383 Safety in Mind conversations and, for the fourth year in a row, we operated without any lost time incidents, an injury accident that causes an employee to take time off work.
