2MW Food-Waste-to-Energy Plant Constructed
Construction work on UK anaerobic digestion facility developer Tamar Energyâ€™s 2 MW food waste recycling facility has been completed, according to GPT Waste, the UKâ€™s largest independent provider of waste management services.
The 45,000 metric ton per year waste-to-energy facility is now being commissioned, with the first electricity generation from food waste expected at the end of the month.
Tamar is working with waste management organizations to secure feedstock for the facility.
In addition to generating renewable energy from waste, the facility will produce nutrient-rich biofertilizer, for which a network of interested farmers is being set up.
Once completely operational, the plant will be Tamar Energyâ€™s fourth AD facility in its strategy for a UK network of AD facilities generating 100MW of renewable energy from organic waste.
Last month, the 600 kW Storms Hog Power facility â€” North Carolinaâ€™s largest swineÂ waste-to-energy system â€” began operating at full capacity.
