Designed and built by Agrivert, South Mimms IVC facility was constructed to service 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.
The facility can accept source segregated co-mingled food and garden waste. The site diverts organic waste from landfill and produces a valuable organic compost fertiliser. Wastes that can be treated in the facility include:
- Source segregated green garden waste A very wide spectrum of green waste can be processed including plant cuttings, weeds, grass cuttings, hedge prunings, cut flowers and branches no larger than 7.5cm in diameter. We are unable to accept Japanese knotweed, ragwort, soil and treated wood.
- Source segregated co-mingled food and green waste All raw and cooked food waste commingled with green garden waste
