Q
Asked on: 26 March 2018
Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
Lakeside Energy from Waste
Lords
To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the impact of the closure of the high temperature incinerator at Lakeside energy from waste plant on (1) clinical waste management, and (2) NHS trusts and GP surgeries.
A
Answered on: 11 April 2018

As the Lakeside energy from waste facility is not nationally significant nor strategic infrastructure for waste, it is unlikely that the closure of the plant would have an impact on the UK’s ability to deal with waste at a national level.

Therefore the Government has not made any specific assessments on the effects of the closure of the Lakeside plant on clinical waste, NHS trusts and GP surgeries. However we understand that Heathrow Airport Ltd (HAL) is already engaging with the owners of the plant and that providing financing and support for a replacement facility is a part of those discussions.
