Sustainable energy solutions for the UK market
Sustainable waste reduction, incineration and recycling
Through MVV Environment, we have taken our decades of experience to the British market as well. Our UK subsidiary provides sustainable and efficient solutions for waste-fired energy generation to publicly and privately owned waste disposal companies, and to local authorities.
Energy from waste – putting residual waste to good use
One of our largest projects is the Devonport Energy from Waste Combined Heat and Power Facility in Plymouth. Since 2015, this new facility has been using around 245,000 tonnes of household, commercial and industrial residual waste a year to generate electricity and heat, notably for Her Majesty’s Naval Base Devonport in Plymouth. In the “Partnership Awards”, a renowned award scheme in the UK, our facility was awarded first prize in three categories – in the overall “Best Project” category, in the “Best Waste/Water/Energy Project” category and in the “Best Local Management Team” category.
In Dundee, we have taken over the existing Baldovie Energy from Waste facility and are in the process of developing a new, state of the art, combined heat and power facility. From 2020, it will generate electricity and steam for the adjacent Michelin tyre factory, using up to 110,000 tonnes of municipal, commercial and industrial waste as fuel.
Environmentally-friendly energy from biomass
Biomass is a key focus of our activities in the British market. This way, we are also meeting our responsibility towards society when it comes to promoting the use of renewable energy. Our biomass power plant at Ridham Dock, Kent, uses 172,000 tonnes of waste and non-recyclable wood a year to generate green electricity and potentially heat as well.
