UPDATE ON “GREEN” ENERGY-FROM-WASTE PLANT – FIRST OF ITS KIND IN UK
This week our Managing Director Uisdean Fraser visited the Dudley-based pharmaceutical manufacturing company, Sterling Pharma Solutions, to view progress of the energy from waste plant.
As can be seen in the pictures the steelwork for the foundations are now completed and the Anaerobic Digestor reactor vessel construction is well under way. The plant to develop a cutting-edge bio-plant enhancement at its Cramlington site to boost the sustainability of its operations and contribute to the UK’s green gas initiative for action against climate change is being managed by the engineering team at Synergie Environ. Managing the team on site is Head of Energy & Projects, Michalis Thaniotis who can be seen in one of the pictures inside the tank.
The first of its kind in the UK, the anaerobic plant will uniquely use liquid waste feedstocks with high organic content and convert them into clean, green energy, cutting carbon emissions substantially and providing green gas sufficient for hundreds of homes across Northumberland.
As a result, the enhanced bio-plant will minimise waste from the Sterling facility and offset greenhouse gas emissions by nearly 6,500 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent per year.
