Sterling Suffolk Ltd (Sterling Suffolk) is located in close proximity to the Suffolk Energy from Waste facility, in Suffolk. The company aims to produce specialty varieties of tomatoes in modern glasshouse facilities and supply to major customers across the UK. Sterling Suffolk’s customers are major retailers at the quality end of the supermarket sector that are themselves ethically based companies with a commitment to social and environmental sustainability. The Suffolk Energy from Waste facility incinerates municipal waste to produce low carbon electricity for up to 30,000 households in the region. This process produces excess heat as a by-product that, if effectively utilised, can significantly increase the efficiency of the Suffolk Energy from Waste plant while displacing carbon intensive natural gas powered heating systems traditionally used in glasshouses.
