Furthermore, a site visit to the fully-operational and recently-opened Greatmoor energy from waste facility will give delegates an exclusive opportunity to see for themselves how Buckinghamshire Council intends to thermally treat up to 300,000 tonnes of residual waste per annum.
An exhibition of leading suppliers and service providers will also run simultaneously alongside the two-day conference providing direct access for delegates to leading industrial technology and service specialists.
A visit to a leading waste to energy plant is a highlight of the Energy from Waste conference. This site visit provides delegates with a unique opportunity to explore operational and technical issues in greater depth.
The Energy from Waste 2016 site visit will be at the Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park on Tuesday 23 February, with transport provided to and from central London to the plant.
Spaces are limited for the site visit to the Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park.
Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park is an exciting new facility which will deal with Milton Keynes’ black sack waste in a sustainable way - through a combination of dry recycling, gasification and dry anaerobic digestion technology.
Amey is working in partnership with Milton Keynes Council to develop the facility, which will bring together state-of-the-art mechanical treatment and heat energy recovery technologies to make the most of rubbish from households and businesses across the borough.
At the Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park, any unrecyclable waste unsuitable for anaerobic digestion – around 93,000 tonnes per year – is passed through the 7MW advanced thermal gasification treatment system.
The site will create enough energy to power the equivalent of 11,000 homes (and in turn reduce landfill to around 3% and provide Milton Keynes Council with a saving on its waste management bill over the coming years).
Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park received planning approval in July 2013 and construction is now well under way, with an expected completion of January 2016. Commissioning and rigorous testing periods will be carried out before it is fully operational in September 2016.
An exhibition of leading suppliers and service providers will run simultaneously alongside the two-day conference providing direct access for delegates to leading industrial technology and service specialists.
Exhibitors at Energy from Waste Conference 2017 will be announced in September:
