Exeter Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) has been operational since July 2014. It operates under partnership with Devon County Council and safely diverts up to 60,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste away from landfill from households within Exeter and the surrounding area each year to create valuable green energy.

Energy produced by the waste treatment process is used to operate the facility and the excess electricity is fed into the national grid. In total the Facility produces 4.2MW of electricity and exports enough energy to supply around 5,000 homes. Exeter ERF also has the potential to run an additional district heating scheme giving further benefit to the local economy.

The facility also includes an education room to enable local schools and community groups to view the process and understand more about recycling and energy recovery.
