CHP plant first to receive double ROCs

O-Gen UK, a timber resource recovery and recycling company, has become the first advanced conversion technology plant in the UK to receive double Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCs) from the UK’s energy regulator Ofgem.

The Staffordshire plant, which is the first of a number of Resource Recovery Centres to be located across the UK, is sited in an existing industrial area to make best use of its combined heat and power (CHP) capabilities and provides a local sustainable solution for treating wood products.

O-Gen UK has developed a technology and commissioned a gasification plant in Stoke-on-Trent that uses advanced treatment techniques to turn waste timber, which would otherwise be disposed of via landfill, into clean renewable energy. Renewable clean products such as charcoal and metals are also recovered.

Its process has been audited and assessed as using the ‘best available technique’ for the disposal of waste timber. The technology aims to be zero waste as only renewable heat and electricity, charcoal products and recovered recycled materials are produced during the operation of the facility.
