In association with Totally Thames I had the great opportunity to work on an illustration for Cory Environmental’s Education Dept. Cory specialise in recycling and energy recovery in Greater London. They still use river barges to transport waste, as when the company was established by William Cory in 1896. I visited a recycling plant in Wandsworth, a Lighterage Station in Charlton and the energy plant in Belvedere, where they turn waste to electricity.
Here’s examples of the illustrations I created to help describe the process. I want to revisit the content soon as there was so much to learn it still feels like a work in progress.
