The Cornwall Energy Recovery Centre exports around 16 megawatts of electricity – enough for 21,000 homes. You can see the latest figures here.
The on-site recycling facility uses the ash produced by the process to make secondary aggregate products for road-building and construction, for example.
The facility includes a purpose-built visitor centre with interactive displays and activities that explain the importance of reducing, reusing, recycling and recovering value from waste.
We welcome visits from Cornwall school and youth groups aged seven and over – our activities will be particularly interesting for key stage 2 students. We can also arrange plant tours for local interest groups and universities.
