Biffa gets go-ahead for Staffordshire AD plant

Biffa has been granted planning permission to build an anaerobic digestion plant at its waste management facility in Poplars, Cannock.

Staffordshire County Council approved the application to construct the plant, which will treat 80,000 tonnes of food waste from households and businesses each year.

Additionally, the facility will be capable of generating 4 MW of electricity, the equivalent of powering over 8,000 homes and Ros Roca Envirotec will provide the technology.

Biffa director of environment and external affairs David Savoury said: From the companys perspective, this development is part of our move towards the development of a network of infrastructure that enables us to manage waste as a resource, maximising recycling and the generation of renewable energy, while reducing reliance on landfill.

Building on the plant is expected to begin later this month ready for Autumn 2010.
