Description

Designed, built and now operated by Agrivert, South Mimms IVC facility services a long term contract with Hertfordshire County Council. The plant can process up to 48,000 tonnes of organic waste per year and has strong environment credentials. The plant’s IVC tunnels are constructed from a unique gore membrane that reduces the plant power requirements to approximately one third of those needed by conventional plants.
