Biomass plant technology deal moves it towards zero waste

EnergyPark Peterborough, Europe’s first biomass power station, is to use Tetronics plasma technology for air pollution control (APC) in a deal signed by Peterborough Renewable Energy (PREL).

Following gasification of the biomass fuel, hazardous APC residues, which would traditionally be sent to landfill, will instead be collected and transferred to the co-located plasma unit. Tetronics’ plasma technology will then separate and destroy the hazardous components to generate a safe and inert product, similar to granite, called Plasmarok.

Commenting on the deal, Tetronics CEO Stephen Davies said: “Tetronics has decades of experience in the UK, Europe and Asia, processing problematic wastes, such as APC residues, in a stable and cost-effective way.

“We are very confident that this development will be a trailblazer for others to follow.”

Chris Williams, managing director of PREL, added: “Tetronics’ contribution has been vital in guaranteeing that a sustainable, practically zero waste facility is achieved. Through this partnership, we hope to see many more developments like EnergyPark Peterborough in years to come.”
