AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – China WtE Facility

Construction of an 18 MW WtE facility

China Everbright International has announced that it is to undertake two projects in Lingshui Li to develop waste-to-energy (WtE) and a food waste treatment facilities. When completed, the WtE facility will be able to process up to 1,050 tonnes of household waste each day, which will generate 71,540,000 kWh of green electricity annually.

The two projects are expected to involve investment of approximately RMB 486 million.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – UK Integrated Waste Management Facility

Construction of an integrated waste management facility

The Environment Agency (EA) has officially approved Gent Fairhead’s application for the development of an integrated waste management facility in Witham, Essex.

The 25.3-hectare site will feature an anaerobic digestion (AD) plant, a materials recovery facility (MRF), mechanical biological treatment (MBT) facility, a combined heat and power (CHP) plant and a paper pulping facility. Visitors will also be able to see the site with a dedicated visitor centre.

The approval comes 9 months on from the EA’s initial refusal of Gent Fairhead’s application, as they believed that the proposed 35-metre stack was insufficient.
