Case Study

Technical Advice: Biomass Gasification Plant (UK)

The client sought to develop a series of six, waste wood and SRF fuelled 5MWe biomass combustion power plants across England.

Use of waste wood/SRF requires the biomass plants to be WID compliant.  SLR were engaged by the developer to undertake two tasks, a technical due diligence of the proposed biomass process and a biomass market assessment of feedstock arisings within a 60 minute drive time.
