Plans to be submitted for AD plant in Suffolk, UK

Plans are to be submitted for a new anaerobic digestion (AD) facility in Suffolk, UK.

If approved, the new plant would be situated next to an existing AD facility operated by Eco Verde Energy. No formal planning application has yet been submitted, Suffolk Live reported, with the proposal’s consultation period ending on 20 March.

According to Parker Planning Services, the plant would produce enough biomethane to heat 7,000 homes from up to 100,000 tonnes of locally-sourced food waste annually.

Parker Planning Services said it understood that construction of this nature will raise concerns locally, but said steps have been taken to minimise air and noise pollution, including a state-of-the-art odour abatement system.

A report commissioned to determine if there will be an impact on the local community from the noise generated from the proposed development concluded it would have no impact. The assessment, including the recommendations, will be shared with the planning authority, Parker Planning Services confirmed.
