How much CO2 will be saved from the facility?

The Northacre facility would produce low carbon energy. The carbon assessment indicates that the Northacre facility would typically save approximately 58,000 tpa CO2 equivalent over a default position of the residual waste that would be treated at the facility being landfilled and the equivalent energy generation occurring via a gas fired power station.  This approach / method of calculating CO2 savings has been accepted by the authorities on numerous other EfW projects.
