The impact of climate change on our fragile planet has brought about a requirement by all countries to establish measures which allow for sustainable development and economic progress, while providing for the long term protection of the environment. Such efforts are critical for the planet and what happens today will have a very great influence on what exists tomorrow and long into the future. Decisions need to be made now.  

Project Beta is a proposal which will not only be of enormous economic and environmental benefit to London, and to its people, but will also bring about the regeneration of large areas of the region.  

Project Beta incorporates the conversion of urban solid waste (paper, plastics and other combustable materials) into gas, including all associated infrastructure, the construction or refurbishing of associated vessels and the construction of Pellet Supply Vessels (PSVs) to transport the household waste pellets known as Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) Pellets.
