Walker Morris advises Energos on renewable energy project in Milton Keynes
Specialist waste lawyers from Walker Morris have advised clean energy-from-waste specialist Energos on a renewable energy project in Milton Keynes.
The project, which will be run by waste management company AmeyCespa, will increase recycling rates, cut landfill use and create waste management savings of more than £50m throughout the life of the facility.
As part of the project, an Energos advanced thermal treatment facility will turn non-recyclable waste into a gas, which is combusted to generate high-temperature steam and used to create electricity in a turbine.
The project will also use mechanical treatment technology by Stadler to extract recyclable materials from the residual waste and an anaerobic digester from Jones Celtic Bieonergy to treat food and organic waste.
It is estimated that the project will create more than 200 jobs throughout the construction of the facilities and 45 jobs once operational.
Planning permission is being granted, with the site planned to be fully operational by 2016. AmeyCespa has been contracted to run the plant for 15 years from 2016.
