#Editor’sPick – Recycling, WtE & Biogas Plants

UK – Recycling & WtE Facility

Construction of a recycling and WtE facility

The Glasgow Recycling and Renewable Energy Centre (GRREC) has commenced operations, boosting the city’s recycling rates and diverting 90% of all council waste from landfill.

The project was initially due for commissioning in 2016 but ran into delays when Interserve issued a trading update and was later served a notice of termination. Doosan Babcock was announced as the new EPC contractor to complete the facility.

The GRREC comprises of a materials recycling facility, an anaerobic digestion plant and an advanced conversion facility which produces refuse-derived fuel from post-recycled materials that remain.

Norway – Biogas Plant

Upgrading of a biogas production facility

Wärtsilä Gas Solutions is supplying a liquefaction plant to the VEAS wastewater treatment plant in Slemmestad. The plant will allow VEAS to upgrade biogas to biomethane for use as a transport fuel.

The project is scheduled to start commercial operations during 2020 and will produce biogas equivalent to approximately 6 million litres of diesel each year.
