Cory Environmental submits Gloucester AD plan

Cory Environmental has applied to Gloucestershire County Council for permission to build a 1MW anaerobic digestion (AD) plant.

If it gets the go-ahead the facility will handle up to 70,000 tonnes per annum of residual household and commercial and industrial wastes, which are currently being landfilled at the Wingmoor Farm West site.

It would also produce refuse derived fuel to divert waste from landfill.

According to the company Gloucestershire’s waste core strategy ‘strongly encourages’ options to drive the management of wastes up the hierarchy and to “establish a network of waste recycling and recovery facilities to serve Gloucestershire in the future”.

Cory has published its environmental statement for the project and supporting documents.

In December Cory won a three-year contract for residual waste in Gwynedd, North Wales. Starting from January, the interim contract involves the disposal of up to 30,000 tonnes of waste per annum into Cory’s Hafod landfill site in Johnstown near Wrexham.

In November the company said the opening of its Weston-super-Mare AD facility was a ‘major milestone’.
