UK bioenergy competition finds three finalists
The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) has announced a shortlist of companies vying for £2.8 million (€3.3 million) in funding to build an energy-from-waste gasification demonstrator plant.
ETI launched the competition in 2012 to find a company to design ‘the most economically and commercially viable, efficient energy from waste gasification demonstrator plant possible’. The three companies on the shortlist are Advanced Plasma Power, Broadcrown and Royal Dahlman.
Each company has been commissioned to design and develop a gasification plant that could operate at between 5 and 20MWe scale.
It is hoped the winning plant will be built and fully operational by 2016.
