Building underway on March AD plant

Green energy company Local Generation has started building its first anaerobic digestion (AD) plant in March, Cambridgeshire. The plant will transform 30,000tes of both packaged and unpackaged food waste each year into clean, green energy and will be fully operational later in 2011.

Nick Waterman, director of Local Generation, says "This is an exciting time for the Local Generation business. It is all systems go now to get our first AD plant up and running! We are really looking forward to seeing our plant take shape. I would like to recognise the excellent support and specifically the capital grant received from the Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP) in helping us to progress this exciting project.

"I would also like to thank my Local Generation colleagues, Monsal, Wardell-Armstrong, Firbeck Construction, Authentic Marketing and Boyarsky Murphy teams, along with our investors. They have all believed in the project from the start and have helped make it a reality!"

He added that the team are looking forward to establishing a sustainable alternative to landfill that will benefit the region's economy and its ecology. "We're genuinely excited about providing an efficient and ethical alternative for dealing with the region's waste".

Lord Redesdale, chairman of the Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Association added his congratulations, saying "this is great news – projects like Local Generation's plant in March should be part of the vanguard for achieving the Government's promise of a 'huge increase' in energy from waste through anaerobic digestion.

"Independent studies have shown that AD is the best treatment for food waste – it reduces landfill and greenhouse gases, generates renewable energy, and preserves resources. Many congratulations to everyone at Local Generation and their partners on beginning the build process."

Sales and marketing leader for Local Generation, Dawn Terry, says that the company will be posting regular updates in the news section of its website in order to keep the local community updated with progress on the plant. Local Generation is looking to establish new relationships with waste providers who would like to use an alternative solution to landfill. If you are interested please contact us.
