Cheshire, UK [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] A joint venture between Bedminster International and Organic Waste Management has secured planning permission from Cheshire County Council to establish a Bedminster BioEnergy facility in Northwich, Cheshire.
The proposed facility will cost £35 million [US $70 million] and will have a capacity of 150,000 tons of waste per year. Bedminster’s technology will be used to separate the biodegradable fraction from waste for conversion into renewable energy. The technology already processes more than 1 million tons of waste annually at 12 plants worldwide.
“The high biomass diversion levels, along with the generation of renewable energy and the negative carbon footprint of the facility, are of tremendous benefit to the UK Government in achieving their key waste, energy and carbon emission policy objectives. Reducing our carbon footprint is perhaps one of the most important steps we can take to save our environment. Bedminster is dedicated to this cause, which is at the core of our business,” said Pearse O’Kane, Bedminster’s CEO.
