Jones Celtic BioEnergy awarded contract by Severn Trent Green Power

20th March 2017

Following a competitive tender process, Jones Celtic BioEnergy (JCBE) was awarded a contract to design, build and commission a bio-waste anaerobic digestion (AD) facility in February 2017 for Severn Trent Green Power. The AD facility will be located adjacent to the Severn Trent Water sewage works at Spondon in Derby.

The facility is designed to process 48,500 tonnes per annum of bio-waste sourced in the vicinity of Derby including food waste. 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 »
