Size

9.9 MWe

Project Status

In Development

Category

RDF-to-energy

Applications

Electricity, bio-methane gas, hydrogen

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 advanced gasification facility. We estimate that the project in total will have the capacity to convert 182,000 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.

Project information

Our role: EQTEC is a co-developer and gasification technology provider of the project and is working closely in partnership with Logik Developments Limited at the site in Deeside, Flintshire, Wales, UK.

Developments: The plant, with combined technologies will create an enhanced integrated waste-to-energy solution and is currently making progress including:

  • Participating in ongoing discussions with potential funders and co-developers
  • Working in partnership with Anaergia Inc. who will develop the engineering design for both the waste processing facility and the AD plant
  • Entered into a collaboration agreement with Toyota, with initial commercial pricing talks for the biomethane and electricity supplies¬†
  • Sourcing the optimal construction and operational structure, with a view to developing additional waste-to-value infrastructure on the site
  • Completing technical due diligence with technology insurance providers.

Latest news

Site update – April 2022: After a design feasibility study for hydrogen production on site, indicated planning and environmental viability, discussions with technology partners have progressed. EQTEC has provided all the concept design and syngas specifications to the shortlisted candidates to provide their technical and commercial proposal for the downstream technology to convert syngas into hydrogen. Additionally, Black and Veatch has been appointed to conduct a peer review of the project and we’re in advanced commercial and contractual discussions to appoint B&V for the full detailed design for the gasification phase.
