Application for bioenergy facility filed in Nottingham
A wood recycling business in Nottinghamshire, UK has submitted planning application for a biomass energy facility.
The new Plevin and Sons facility would be based in Elkesley and could potentially generate 1.6MW of electricity and 8MW of heat via 25,000 tonnes of wood waste as feedstock.
‘The proposed biomass CHP plant would be carbon neutral and offset 25,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year,’ says Plevin and Sons MD Jamie Plevin. ‘It would use wood sourced mainly from local civic amenity sites that would otherwise go to landfill, plus any excess electricity will be exported to the National Grid.’
The application is being considered by Nottinghamshire County Council and a decision is expected by early 2013.
