US: Development of a waste recycling and disposal facility

In Connecticut, the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) have been working towards redeveloping the Connecticut Solid Waste System Project (CSWSP).

Last month, Sacyr Rooney Recovery Team was selected to modernise the Materials Innovation and Recycling Authority’s (MIRA) materials recovery facility in Hartford, which will involve the refurbishment of the power block facility.

Lithuania: Construction of a co-generation power plant

Lietuvos Energija has reported that they have been issued with a construction permit to allow contractors to start laying foundations of their new power plant. It was originally hoped that construction would begin in the first quarter of 2017, but as the Municipality was still finalising details of the height of the building, this was consequently delayed.

Work is now scheduled to be completed towards the end of 2019/early 2020.

Full details from this project can be found here.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – Ukraine Biofuel Pellet Plant

Expansion of biofuel pellet production facilities

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – US Waste Processing Park

Development of a waste processing business park

Last month, it was announced that companies had been selected by the Kent County Department of Public Works (DPW) to develop the master plan for a sustainable business park on the South Kent Landfill site. Gershman, Bricker & Bratton (GBB), Fishbeck, Thompson, Carr & Huber and Stern Brothers & Co. are all involved in the assignment.

If the project goes ahead, it will involve the repurposing of 200 acres of future landfill to attract waste conversion processes, such as gasification and anaerobic digestion, to West Michigan.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – US Landfill

Construction of a new landfill cell

At a meeting held last month, the Planning Commission of Suffolk County, VA, agreed to seek permission to construct a new landfill cell at the existing 833-acre regional site. If approved by the City Council, the new cell will provide an additional 10.8 million cubic yards of disposal capacity for the landfill, which will lengthen the operating life of the facility.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – China WtE Facility

Construction of a 36 MW WtE plant

China Everbright International has revealed that it’s Dongguan Machong WtE plant successfully passed its ‘72+24’ hour trial towards the end of June. Handover to the investor has been completed and the plant is now fully operational.

The facility will process up to 1,500 tonnes of household waste each day using three mechanic grate furnaces. Current expectations are for it to generate around 160,000,000 kWh of green electricity annually.

As today’s full access project, you can take a look at the key information behind this development, along with the contact details of some of the decision-makers involved. Click here to find out more.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – Netherlands Waste-to-Biofuel Plant

Development of a demonstration sewage waste-to-biofuel plant

A group of 12 organisations are partnering together on the TO-SYN-FUEL project, which will develop a demonstration plant in Rotterdam to turn waste biomass into synthetic fuels and hydrogen.

Fraunhofer UMSICHT will co-ordinate the project and will also be providing their thermo-catalytic reforming (TCR) technology for the production of the fuels.

Under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme, the project has been awarded funding to run for 48 months from May 2017.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – UK WtE Facility

Construction of a 14.4 MW WtE facility

Back in 2014, Wheelabrator Technologies was selected to develop a new waste-to-energy (WtE) facility on the Deeside Industrial Estate in Wales. The plant is expected to be used to treat residual waste from regions in North Wales, totalling approximately 200,000 tonnes per annum. Once operational, it will generate around 133 GWh of electricity – enough to power 30,000 homes in the area.

At the start of May 2017, CNIM announced that it has been awarded the contract for the turnkey design and construction phases of the project. It is scheduled to commence operations in 2019.
