A flagship project at the heart of Dagenham Dock's London Sustainable Industries park is now well under way, according to TEG Group.

The organic waste specialist said work was progressing well on its combined anaerobic digestion and composting plant at the park, and that the project was on target for completion next year.

TEG said installation of the steelwork and main cladding for the composting plant was the current main focus of activity, while work on the digester process was also ongoing.

The firm said that the £21 million facility would be able to process 49,000 tonnes of food and green waste every year - 30,000 tonnes via anaerobic digestion, and the remainder through the in-vessel composting plant – and will produce 1.4 megawatts of electricity that will be sold to the National Grid, along with compost for agricultural use.
