Power plant on track for 2016 commissioning

The straw burning plant being developed at the former Brigg Sugar factory is on schedule for commissioning in early 2016, according to an article in Market Rasen Mail.

Eco2 received planning permission for the plant in October 2011 and in August 2013 BWSC purchased the project as part of a £160m deal. The plant will use over 240,000 tonnes of wheat straw feedstock annually, sourced from producers within a 50-mile radius. It will also use wood chips as auxiliary fuel.

The straw will be burnt to produce high-pressure, high-temperature steam, which will drive the turbine to generate electricity. The steam will then be condensed back into water and ash produced as a side product due to the combustion will be recycled for fertiliser.
