Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park
Location: Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, UK
System Capacity: Capacity: 2x600 kWp
Technology: Anaerobic Digestion (AD)
With the big governmental push towards minimizing waste and landfills, Milton Keynes council sends its ‘black sack’ waste to Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park. Amey, the constructor of the Anaerobic Digestor (AD) plant, treats the waste mechanically before placing it in the digestor to generate renewable energy.
The waste capacity of the plant is 32,000 tonnes per year with a 1,200 kWp total electricity generation capacity. N-ERGY collaborates with Amey to provide routine and preventive maintenance and call-outs.
The technical support N-ERGY provides, helps the AD plant run on maximum capacity to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill and to produce clean and renewable energy at the same time. This project reduces the waste going to landfills by 3% and the generated electricity is enough to power 11,000 homes.
