Our Riverside Energy from Waste facility in Belvedere has been operating within all daily air pollution limits since it opened in 2012.
Our Environmental Permit requires us to report monthly emissions data to the Environment Agency as well as publish it on our website. As part of our commitment to transparency we also publish the annual performance report that we submit to the Environment Agency.
The Environmental Research Group of Imperial College London (formerly Kings College London) independently monitors air quality around our Riverside facility at eight different monitoring locations in the surrounding boroughs of Bexley, Barking and Dagenham and Havering. The results from their 2019 study confirmed that the UK Air Quality Strategy objectives were met at all monitoring sites around our facility.
We are constantly looking for opportunities to upgrade our Continuous Monitoring System to improve our ability to monitor our emissions and continue to be a sector leader in measurement and transparency.
