Secreterty of State Approves Peel Environmental’s WtE Plans : Go-Ahead for Waste to Energy Gasification Plant in Nottinghamshire, UK

Peel Environmental waste to energy gasification Bilsthorpe

Peel Environmental’s plans for a 9.6 MW waste to energy gasification facility in Nottinghamshire, UK have been approved by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Greg Clark MP.

The Bilsthorpe Energy Centre comprises two elements. The first, a Materials Recycling Facility (MRF), will produce fuel and recover valuable recyclable materials from residual waste that would otherwise have been sent to landfill.

The second, a waste to energy gasification facility, will then use the fuel to create electricity and heat. Once built, the facility will divert up to 117,000 tonnes of waste from landfill and recover up to 22,000 tonnes of recyclable materials each year.

A planning application for the facility was originally approved by members of Nottinghamshire County Council in 2014, but was subsequently called-in for consideration by the government.

However, the Secretary of State has agreed with an inspector’s recommendation to grant consent for the Bilsthorpe Energy Centre following examination of the proposals.

According to the developer, the £70million Energy Centre to be developed in Bilsthorpe will create up to 330 Full Time Equivalent jobs during construction and 46 jobs permanent jobs once operational.

“Our plans will stimulate investment and bring new jobs to the area in addition to bringing a former industrial site back into productive use,” said Richard Barker, development manager at Peel Environmental.

“The Energy Centre will be a solution to some of the county’s waste challenges and will in turn create supply chain opportunities and a boost to the local economy of around £4 million per year,” he added.

Peel Environmental added that is also has a number of additional consented schemes such as the 21 MW Protos waste to energy plant in Cheshire and a 250,000 tonne per year anaerobic digestion and MRF plant in Glasgow.
