AD plant in Cornwall

Cornwall, UK, is set to be the home of a £1.5 million (€1.9 million) anaerobic digestion (AD) plant after planning permission, submitted by AD installation company Green and Pleasant Recycling, is close to being finalised at the Cornwall Council.

The plant will process local food and waste as well as farm waste for the generation of 350km/h of electricity and 500kW/h of heat.

The facility is expected to be completed in spring next year and will comprise of part-buried digestion containers, including the Norwegian Biowaz AS and Bioplex.

According to Julian Maiklem, managing director for Green and Pleasant Recycling, the National Farmers Union believe that a minimum of 1,000 AD plants need to be constructed throughout the UK as they are ‘vital’ for the recycling of food and farm waste.
