U.K. Green-Lights First Energy Park, an Industrial Info News Alert

GALWAY, IRELAND--(Marketwire - November 6, 2009) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- The government has granted permission for the first energy park in the United Kingdom that will take mixed waste and recycle or remanufacture every element to produce renewable energy, glass, building blocks, metals and other compounds. The 80-megawatt (MW) facility in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, will be built by Peterborough Renewable Energy Limited (PREL) (Peterborough) and is expected to cost about £250 million ($415 million). Located on a 25-acre site at Storey's Bar Gate, the energy park will burn up to 650,000 tonnes of biomass waste to generate enough power for 60,000 homes, displacing about 600,000 tonnes of carbon-dioxide emissions annually. The unique aspect of this biomass facility is that additional waste will be remade into other useful products.
