Applications

Electricity, bio-methane gas

Background

The site currently has planning permission for a waste recycling facility and an anaerobic digestion facility, with a council resolution secured to grant planning consent for the gasification facility. We estimate that the project in total will have the capacity to convert c182,000 tonnes per year of non-recyclable everyday household and commercial waste, otherwise destined for landfill or incineration, into green electricity, enough to power 37,500 homes.
