96,000 TPA Waste Gasification Plant Awarded EA Permit in Merseyside – UKPosted on November 20, 2012 by DrRossH in Landfills and Disposal
Once operational the plant is expected to generate some 9 MW of power, which Energos said is equivalent to the output of 15 large wind turbines.
According to the site’s developer the facility is designed to complement local recycling initiatives and to process only non-hazardous, residual waste, with an ability to accept a variety of waste streams, including refuse derived fuel (RDF).
It is important to realsie that once material goes to a WTE it is forever lost. We need to recycle as much as we can and then after that has been sorted then send the remaing non recyclable material to a WTE plant for power generation.
