Biomass CHP expansion at UK recycling park

Lincolnshire County Council has given the green light for composting specialist Organic Recycling to extend its operations to include anaerobic digestion (AD) and a biomass CHP boiler at its recycling site in Crowland, UK.

Andrew Riddington, managing director of Organic Recycling explains that naturally produced methane will be converted into electricity through a combined heat and power unit, with the excess heat and carbon dioxide used in glasshouses adjacent to the plant.

The site will be able to handle 150,000 tonnes of waste at the 52 acre site, and produce enough power from a renewable resource for over 1400 homes, according to the company.

The biomass boiler will also generate heat for use in the glasshouses from a variety of wood and biomass wastes generated from external and internal sources.
