Newport grants Biogen gasification plant planning permission

A new gasification plant is set to be built in Newport, south Wales, after planning permission was granted to BioGen Power.

The facility will have the capacity to process 120,000 tonnes of waste and will generate 12 MWe of electricity. BioGen Power will work with Energos to provide the technology for the plant.

BioGen Power chief executive Christian Reeve said: This is a highly suitable location with good electricity connection, direct links to the highway, high potential for heat recovery and close proximity to waste customers. As such, there were no objections from statutory consultees or the general public.

We have plans to develop 12 gasification from waste plants in the UK and conducted a worldwide search to identify Energos as the best technology provider. Critically, this means we can offer a commercially proven, financially viable process that sets new standards of emissions performance and is a best practice alternative to incineration and landfill.

Energos recently opened the UKs first gasification plant to operate on municipal waste in the Isle of Wight as part of the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs New Technology Demonstrator Programme.
