Germany – WtE Plant
Development of a waste-to-energy plant
Earlier this month, LEAG revealed that it is exploring the option of developing a waste-to-energy (WtE) and treatment/recovery plant at its industrial site in Jänschwalde.
The facility would process thermally treated, non-recyclable waste, with energy generated potentially being used for district heating, process steam and power generation.

Canada – Biofuels Facility
Development of a wheat-based biofuels facility
Carbon Clean Energy Inc is developing a C$285 million wheat-based biofuels facility in Alberta.
The plant, which is the first of its kind and will feature state-of-the-art facilities, will produce 160 million litres of denatured ethanol, 1.76 mmBtu of biogas and 12 MWh of green power each year.

Construction of an AD plant to be fed with manure and slurry
Site works have started for the construction of an anaerobic digestion (AD) plant in Vire-Normandie, Calvados.
The facility will incorporate a waste disposal centre and composting unit also. It will process up to 64,538 tonnes of manure and slurry each year, producing 4.5 million cubic metres of biogas.
See the full details of this project.
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.

Costa Rica – Energy Plants & Recycling Park
Total Energy Waste Solutions (TEWS) is proposing to build Latin America’s largest waste-to-energy (WtE) gasification plant in an undisclosed location in Costa Rica.
The energy park will include the WtE plant, along with a recycling centre, steam reconversion processor, biofuel and ethanol refinery, methane gas plant and a waste site.

Germany – Biogas Plant
Groundbreaking has taken place as part of a project to develop a €14 million biogas plant in Börde. Around 70,000 tonnes of raw material will be processed annually, including poultry manure, corn, grain silage and sugar beets.
When operational, an estimated 700 cubic metres of biomethane will be extracted, which will eventually produce heat and electricity for 22,000 people.
