Welcome to the Indaver Rivenhall Integrated Waste Management Facility (IWMF) Development Consent Order


Thank you for taking the time to view these materials about our proposal for the Rivenhall Integrated Waste Management Facility (‘IWMF’).

The Rivenhall IWMF is being constructed to help divert waste from landfill and sustainably manage waste. An important component of the IWMF is an EfW – an Energy-from-Waste plant – which once operational, will treat residual waste and convert it into electricity to help power our homes and businesses.  


Our current planning permission allows us to generate up to 49.9 megawatts (‘MW’) of electricity. To ensure that we are running the IWMF as efficiently as possible and making the best use of modern technology, we are preparing an application for a Development Consent Order (‘DCO’) that would allow the plant to generate more than 50MW of electricity. It is only on this increase in electricity generation that we are consulting on, not the IWMF itself as that is already consented. 


As part of our preparation of the DCO application, we carried out a public consultation from 28th June to 23rd August 2023, during which we invited feedback on a series of documents we provided. This was to help inform the preparation of the DCO application. Whilst the consultation window has now ended, all documents provided during that time can still be accessed using the links below.

This diagram shows the waste and electrical processes which take place in the consented EfW. As detailed in the consultation documents available for download below, the proposed DCO would result in changes to the inlet control valves adjacent to the turbo-generator.


We have provided information in the documents below to help you understand who we are and what we are proposing to apply for.  


Detailed information is provided in our Preliminary Environmental Information Report (‘PEIR’) and its Non-technical summary. The PEIR contains detailed information on the likely significant effects of the project on the environment.  

The Statement of Community Consultation (‘SOCC’) sets out how we planned to consult and receive feedback from local communities on our proposals to extend the generation output of the Rivenhall IWMF.
