A gasification technology solutions company for sustainable waste-to-energy projects has been given the green light for an improved scheme.
EQTEC’s proposed25 MWe Billingham waste gasification and power plant at Haverton Hill, at Billingham, UK, has been granted planning permission from Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council.
David Palumbo, CEO of EQTEC, said: “We are delighted to start 2021 with the achievement of a significant milestone for the project and company, by securing planning approval on the project site for our revised scheme.
“EQTEC estimates that, with the application of our advanced gasification technology, this sustainable waste-to-energy project will convert 200,000 tonnes of non-recyclable household and commercial waste each year into 25MWe of green electricity and 34MW of thermal heat production. This is waste that would otherwise be diverted to less economically and environmentally beneficial options such as landfill or incineration.”
The plans are part of a number of projects currently being reviewed by the European owner-operator of waste to energy infrastructure.
To date, four commercial plants have been built and are using EQTEC's advanced gasification technology, which is proven and patented for sustainable waste-to-energy projects.
EQTEC designs and supplies advanced gasification solutions that have a higher efficiency product offering and are modular and scalable from 1MW to 25MW.
