Plans for new landfill gas plant at rubbish dump unveiled

Plans for new landfill gas plant at rubbish dump unveiled
Gas from landfill sites is used to generate electricity in a way reduces the overall impact on the environment from waste. Plans for a new landfill gas plant at a rubbish dump site in Weldon have been unveiled.

According to SITA, the company behind the proposal, for every tonne of waste discarded by the people of Corby the plant could generate enough electricity to power one home for about a month.

That means that for every tonne of waste the carbon emissions associated with heating a home by other means will not be emitted, while the emissions from the waste, which would have been released into the atmosphere anyway, remain the same.

A spokesperson for the company said: "Every tonne of waste could provide more than 340 kilowatt hours worth of electricity. The electricity is generated at 415 volts and transformed to 11,000 volts for export and distribution via the local electricity network."

SITA has also applied for permission to build an incinerator to generate electricity from waste in Telford in the West Midlands.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18774068-ADNFCR
