Energos to provide technology for Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park


AmeyCespa’s proposed Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park will have its gasification technology provided by Energos.

The proposed waste recovery park comprises a three-stage waste treatment process to treat household waste using mechanical treatment, anaerobic digestion and advanced thermal treatment.


A planning application is currently being considered and if approved, the park could be operational in 2016.

The Energos Advanced Conversion Technology would be used at the final stage in the process to convert any remaining, non-recyclable waste into a syngas for the production of high temperature steam that can be converted into electricity in a turbine.

It will be able to process more than 90,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste and could generate 7MW of green electricity, enough to power around 11,000 homes.

Energos managing director Nick Dawber said: “We look forward to working with AmeyCespa to build a best practice advanced thermal treatment facility. This would provide the community with an environmentally responsible, small-scale energy from waste solution that will ensure the diversion of biodegradable material from landfill. It will also generate a valuable supply of renewable energy that can provide an income stream since it is eligible for double Renewable Obligation Certificates.”
