New Earth Solutions have been granted planning permission for two new renewable energy facilities. The company, which helps local authorities meet their obligations to divert waste, converts biomass waste into methane gas.
One of the facilities, a 10MW energy plant in Dorset converts the waste into gas using pyrolysis technology, an anaerobic process that operates under extreme temperatures. The second will be a mechanical biological treatment facility at Widnes Waterfront, where New Earth will contribute to the regeneration of the 12 acre area.
Robert Asquith, Planning Director of New Earth Solutions, said:”In proposing suitably-sized facilities that are designed to take account of local issues, we are achieving a successful stream of planning applications which we are turning into operational facilities.”
