Autumn 2012 start for new Bristol AD plant

Construction of a food waste processing facility with the capacity to handle 40,000 tonnes of food waste per year is under construction at the Bristol Sewage Treatment works in Avonmouth.

GENeco’s food waste anaerobic digestion treatment facility is said to be capable of supplying the energy needs for around 3,000 homes.

A contract has been placed with Finning for delivery of the plant. Design and process engineering technology will be provided by Monsal with civil engineering undertaken by Damar.

Mohammed Saddiq, GENeco’s General Manager, said  “Our parent company Wessex Water has been digesting sewage sludge for over 40 years and this plant builds on the group’s considerable wealth of expertise in harnessing renewable energy through anaerobic digestion.”

The GENeco food waste plant is based on the Monsal plant design in Deerdykes and will begin accepting food waste deliveries from autumn 2012.
