Countrystyle Recycling Ltd recently acquired the Halstead Renewable Power Project (HRPP) from Glendale Power, and will now forge ahead with the development of an Anaerobic Digestion Plant at the Essex site, for which full planning permission has been granted.
The Halstead Project is an exciting new development for Countrystyle, a renewable power plant that will run on locally collected food waste to produce renewable electricity sufficient to power 3000 homes and enough heat for the future expansion of the adjacent industrial estate.
The project will also provide soil conditioner suitable for improving local clay soils and a greenhouse gas reduction to more than offset the total output of all of the town’s cars.
All of these outputs will come from materials that would otherwise go to waste, either via landfill or incineration.
Jeremy Elden, Managing Director of Glendale Power, said Countrystyle is an acknowledged leader in Organics Recycling and Glendale Power is looking forward to working together on this progressive scheme.
Elden reiterated that Glendale will be retained as a partner in the project, and will combine the two firms’ strengths to develop an AD plant that sets the highest standards.
Mat Stewart, Managing Director of Countrystyle, said Countrystyle believes that Anaerobic Digestion has the potential to deliver substantial environmental benefit by closing the loop in returning nutrients to the soil and recovering the energy from materials that would otherwise go to waste.
Detailed designs for the development will now be created, with construction beginning in early 2012, ready for the commissioning of the plant in late 2012.
