Northacre Renewable Energy,Bioenergy Infrastructure Group
Date: 2020-06-19
In the UK, Reading-based waste-to-energy specialist Northacre Renewable Energy Limited reports it is changing the technology to be used in its proposed, £200 million, 243,000 tpy Westbury plant from gasification to a conventional moving grate combustion process primarily due to supply chain uncertainty caused by Brexit.

Northacre Renewable Energy Limited (NREL) is special purpose joint venture established to deliver the Northacre energy from waste facility in Westbury. NREL is jointly owned by Bioenergy Infrastructure Group, a UK independent power producer specialising in energy-from-waste and biomass facilities, and The Hills Group, a Wiltshire-based company with business activities including waste management, quarrying of aggregates and building new homes. BIG invests in a number of energy facilities across the UK, including the Hull Energy Works facility, Evermore Renewable Energy and Birmingham Bio Power.

Bioenergy Infrastructure Group
Date: 2019-04-12
In the UK, Bioenergy Infrastructure Group (BIG) reports its Ince Bio Power plant in Ince, Cheshire has completed test and is now fully operational.

The 21.5 MW plant, which processes up to 170,000 tpy of waste wood to generate low carbon energy, produces sufficient electric power for more than 40,000 homes. The plant will deliver a net reduction in greenhouse gas emissions worth around 65,000 tpy of CO2, the equivalent of taking more than 40,000 cars off the road.

BIG also owns and operates energy from waste wood biomass plants in Birmingham, Northern Ireland and Widnes and has projects under development in Hull, Lanark in Scotland and Hoddesdon in Hertfordshire.
