#Editors’Pick – Waste treatment and biodigester plants

Russia: Development of a RUB 14 billion waste treatment park

Techno Recycling Group has revealed plans to build a new waste treatment park in Slantsy. The 80 hectare complex is expected to process 2 million tonnes of municipal solid waste each year.

Work on the first four of fourteen lines is scheduled to begin in July, with the facility expected to be finished and open in 2025.

Mexico: Inauguration of a pilot biodigester plant

A pilot biodigester has been inaugurated at the Nopal-Verdura Collection and Marketing Centre in Milpa Alta. The facility is the first biodigester in Mexico that has been installed directly at the site of waste generation.

In total, the plant will have capacity to process 100 tonnes of nopal (cactus) and vegetable waste each month. This will generate 170 cubic metres of biogas and will produce water for agricultural use.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – Italy Organic Waste Treatment Facility

Construction of a 100,000 tpa organic waste treatment facility

This month, the building site for a new organic waste treatment facility in Bologna was opened. Expected to have a capacity of 100,000 tonnes per annum, the facility will produce enough biogas to heat around 5,000 homes, as well as produce 30,000 tonnes of compost to be sold to farms and garden centres.

Hitachi Zosen Inova (HZI) will be supplying the Kompogas dry anaerobic digestion technology, which, when complete, is set to be the largest in Europe. Construction on these is scheduled to begin in July 2017.

This project is now available to access in full for 7 days. To catch up on the latest, click here.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – UK AD Plant

Construction of an AD plant to process food waste

A new anaerobic digestion (AD) facility has officially been opened on the Zero Waste Parc in Millerhill, Scotland. Construction on site began in the first quarter of 2016, with final work being completed in July 2016. Since then, the plant has been in commissioning phases.

The 30,000 tonnes per year facility will process household and commercial food waste in the local area. It will generate 1.4 MW of renewable energy from the grid and biofertiliser for farmland.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – UK Biomass Plant

Construction of a 270,000 tpa wood-fuelled biomass plant

It was revealed in February 2017 that steam blasting is now under way at the site where a wood-fuelled biomass plant is being constructed in Tilbury, Essex. The project is reportedly on schedule and on budget, with Technik advising AcuComm that delivery is expected in July 2017.

The facility is expected to generate 300 GWh of green electricity per year, enough to power more than 70,000 homes in the area.

You can now access this project in full, free of charge, for the next 7 days. To make sure you don’t miss out, click here.

AcuComm’s ‘Essential’ China MSW Report is out now!

The latest edition of our ‘Essential’ Business Reports series highlights the insights, trends and forecasts for the Chinese Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) sector. Since the beginning of 2013, AcuComm has monitored over 90 MSW investments across China. This report will provide details on these investments, including direct contact details of key decision-makers in a separate Excel file.

Key points from this report include:

  • China’s rapid economic growth is leading to steadily-rising waste generation. While the overall level remains low, MSW generation is beginning to approach that in Europe.
  • The focus for investment is very much WtE incineration, which many authorities consider greener than landfill, and also helps deal with burgeoning power generation requirements. The number of WtE facilities doubled between 2009 and 2014.
  • AcuComm has identified actual/potential WtE power generation of over 3,217 MW since 2013.
  • Most waste projects are located in China’s more developed eastern provinces, where population density and economic development are at their greatest.

This report is a truly unique practical sales solution, providing you with a clear, fact-based assessment of the health of the Chinese MSW sector. Our data is based on real projects and not market estimates.

#Editors’Pick – Hazardous waste & biocrude facilities


China: Construction of a hazardous waste treatment facility
SUEZ Environment has signed an agreement with Fulong Environmental Company and Wall-Mark, establishing a joint venture that will focus on the development of industrial hazardous waste treatment.

The three parties will be committed to the development of an integrated waste treatment plant with a designed capacity of 30,000 tonnes per uyear in the city of Foshan, Guangdong Province, in order to meet the city’s hazardous waste treatment needs.

Canada: Construction of a biocrude production facility
Construction has been initiated on a 10.5 million gallon per year biocrude production facility located in Port-Cartier, Québec. The Cote Nord Project, which is being developed by Ensyn, Arbec Forest Products and Groupe Rémabec, will utilise Ensyn’s proprietary Rapid Thermal Processing (RTP) technology. The RTP conversion unit is being engineered and supplied by Envergemnt Technologies, a joint venture between Ensyn and Honeywell UOP.

The project will be the first RTP facility purpose-built for the production of biocrude used for heating, cooling and refinery applications. The plant will be the first commercial-scale facility of this kind in Québec.
