news item image
Developers have been given approval to build a second anaerobic digestion (AD) plant at Hemswell Cliff between Gainsborough and Lincoln in the UK.
The Lincolnite reports that the plant is expected to generate up to 6MW of renewable energy, which will be used to provide electricity, heating, biomethane and CO2 to West Lindsey District Council’s Food Enterprise Zone (FEZ) in a bid to meet the surging demand for green energy.
The facility is set to be located adjacent to A M Duguid & Son's existing AD plant and will have a connection to the National Grid at the existing site.
The application includes an associated waste reception building, a vehicle fuelling station and three digesters.
During a meeting today (3 June), members of Lincolnshire County Council's Planning & Regulation Committee unanimously approved the plans, noting that the plant will be located on land that is already industrialised.
Planning officer Neil McBride explained that planning permission for the first plant had been granted in 2012 and operations have since expanded, and that the new plant will be identical to the original.
