Members of Wrekin U3A visited the Veolia Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) centre at Battlefields, Shrewsbury, on 19th September 2018. These visits have been organised by member John Boydell for parties of ten people at a time.
The facility is designed to process 90,000 tonnes of waste each year. It converts the waste into enough energy to power 10,000 homes.
The ERF operates 365 days a year and is monitored 24 hours a day to ensure it complies with strict European standards.
