Welcome to the CHER project

CHER is an energy from waste facility that will recover energy by processing around 230,000 tonnes of West Sussex’s non-recyclable waste every year. It will generate up to 23MW of low carbon electricity and steam, enough energy to power the equivalent of approximately 47,000 homes.
