The Cornwall Energy Recovery Centre, St Dennis wins Sustainable Project of the Year

The winners of the 15th annual Michelmores Property Awards have been revealed, celebrating outstanding property and construction projects in Devon, Somerset, Bristol, Dorset and Cornwall, across ten categories. 

Congratulations to the Cornwall Energy Recovery Centre (CERC), St Dennis – winner of Sustainable Project of the Year, sponsored by Midas

The CERC, a project managed by Cornwall Energy Recovery, is central to an integrated waste management strategy for Cornwall. It uses innovative methods to reduce and reuse waste, developing facilities to allow for more recycling, composting and energy recovery to take place. The CERC plays an important role in reducing Cornwall’s carbon footprint by recovering energy, both heat and electricity, from the waste left over after recycling and composting, and reducing the reliance on landfill sites.




The winners were announced at an Awards Dinner on Thursday 15 June at the University of Exeter, hosted by comedian and actor Marcus Brigstocke.
