Peterborough EnergyPark plans submitted

Peterborough EnergyPark plans submitted
Plans have been submitted for approval for a development that will process up to 650,000 tonnes of mixed waste a year, using the biomass to generate heat and power.

The EnergyPark proposal by Peterborough Renewable Energy will have a capacity to generate 66 megawatts (MW) and will create no waste leaving the site for landfill.

It will also have a thermal capacity of 234MW and its combined heat and power grid will provide energy to a Centre of Excellence research and development facility.

Waste from a 20 mile radius will be collected for the EnergyPark, though developers would like to stop some of the 812,000 tonnes of London waste that enter Cambridgeshire from going to landfill.

The park would fit in with Peterborough council's bid to become The UK's Environment Capital, which has seen a consortium of developers plan to build a zero-carbon neighbourhood in the city centre.

It has also been designed to take neighbours into account, with measures to minimise odour and noise in place.

Developers have also ensured that a nearby archaeological site is not endangered by the plans.
