New waste wood energy plant will light 49,000 homes in Yorkshire
Barnsley metropolitan borough council gave planning permission to build a £65 million waste wood gasification plant on a former coal mine. The future Renewable Energy Centre, managed by Peel Environmental, will be capable of processing 150,000 tonnes of waste wood each year and will generate enough energy to power ca. 49,000 homes in Yorkshire.
Peel Environment said that "the development would provide up to 25 jobs during operation and 200 jobs during the construction phase". Find out more on letsrecycle.com.
