This will result in a significant contribution to the diversion of this resource from landfill while harnessing the inherent renewable energy potential that would otherwise be lost. The bio-waste will be supplemented with sustainable biomass, i.e. the plant will not process any conventional energy crops. The facility includes a thermo-pressure hydrolysis (TPH) pre-treatment process for the incoming waste to allow for high efficiency performance of the subsequent AD process.  Pre-treated … Read More »
