- The TEG Group has commenced construction of the £21 million organic waste facility at East London's Dagenham Dock in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, which is the first anaerobic digestion (AD) energy plant to be constructed in Central London.

The new facility will process 49,000 tonnes per annum of food and green waste via AD and In-vessel composting (IVC) technology on a 4.7 acre site on the Mayor of London's 60 acre London Sustainable Industries Park (LSIP).

The plant will generate approximately 1.4MW of electricity, sufficient to power approximately 2,000 homes. It will also produce over 36,000 tonnes p.a. in AD digestate and 14,000 tonnes p.a. of compost for agricultural use.
