Peel Environmental and Tamar Energy have agreed to create up to five anaerobic digestion (AD) plants across the north of England.
The companies have signed a heads of terms agreement by which Peel Environmental will provide suitable sites exclusively for Tamar Energy.
Tamar chief executive Alan Lovell said the deal demonstrated his company’s “drive and commitment” to deliver a UK-wide AD network.
“The new facilities will be developed, constructed and operated by Tamar Energy as part of our plan to create a ‘critical mass’ of around 40 plants by 2018,” he said.
“Our innovative funding model means we are in a unique position in the AD industry to deliver on our promise of a cost-effective, reliable and sustainable energy and waste management solution for local councils and waste contractors alike.”
Jane Gaston, development manager at Peel Environmental, added: “As a company, we work closely with operators, construction companies, funders and technology providers to help deliver full package solutions for waste management infrastructure.”
Tamar said in June that it was on target with its plans to create a network of about 40 AD plants by 2018.
