Reduce the potential for greenhouse gases from landfill using Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) and Anerobic Digestion
Biffa and West Sussex County Council have signed a 25-year agreement to treat the County’s residual municipal waste at a state-of-the-art Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) and Anaerobic Digestion (AD) facility. Two fuel streams are produced by the process. Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) is produced by the MBT plant and methane is produced by the AD process which is utilised on site to power Combined Heat and Power (CHP) engines producing up to 4.2 MW of electricity. The facility treats up to 312,000 tonnes per annum of waste to divert recyclable and biodegradable material from landfill and improve recycling and reuse, reducing waste going to landfill by up to 80%.
Stantec was appointed to provide project management, contract administration and engineering services to support Biffa in managing the overall design and construction process with particular focus on the EPC contractor and multiple specialist suppliers.
The facility represents a significant part of Sussex County Council’s capability to meet its targets for recycling and diversion of waste as well as recovery of energy for the next 25 years and is one of the largest of its kind in the UK and Europe.
