Brazil – Biogas Facility

Construction of a biogas plant

Last month, Raízen announced a joint venture (JV) with Geo Energética for the development of a biogas plant in Guariba. The plant, which will be the first of its kind to use filter cake conversion technology on a commercial-scale, will located next to Raízen’s Bonfim unit.

Up to 138,000 MWh of electricity will be generated, enough to supply the local area and nearby cities in São Paulo.

UK – WtE Facility

Construction of a 37 MW WtE plant

PMAC Energy is planning to build a 37 MW waste-to-energy (WtE) plant in Redcar, Teesside, to produce enough electricity to power 56,000 households.

MSW and commercial/industrial waste will be processed at an on-site materials recycling facility (MRF), which will produce fuel for both the WtE plant and for the production of refuse-derived fuel (RDF) for export.

The project is expected to cost around £250 million and could be completed as early as 2021.
