Abstract: London’s waste production is unsustainable. As an alternative to landfilling non-recyclable, non-reusable waste, energy-from-waste (EfW) recovery can be implemented in order to maximize sustainability. The following report supplies an overview of the various EfW technologies, conveys the political, environmental, economic, and social implications of its development and lastly, provides recommendations for EfW’s application in Wembley City. Overcoming the negative public perception of incineration and other EfW technologies will be a major driver for the technologies’ progress.
