Grant awarded for heat recovery project

A Smart Grant has been awarded to EcoGenR8 to carry out a market assessment investigating the recovery of low grade waste heat and its viable and economic conversion into electricity. The grant was awarded by the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) with the aim of assisting businesses to engage in research and development projects in strategically important areas to enable the successful emergence of new products, processes and services.

EcoGenR8 partnered with Puntios, and Parhelian Underwriting, companies with experience in commercialising and raising finance for technology spin-outs from industry, to deliver the project which will also be assisted by and delivered through the AFECO technical team. The project will determine whether energy recovery systems, such as organic rankine cycle (ORC) engines, can be successfully matched with industrial sources of low grade waste heat, seek to identify technology solutions, priority industrial applications and build a business case for new investment into this market.

Planning granted for food waste facility

We are pleased to announce that the planning application for a food waste anaerobic digestion treatment at Thames Water’s Banbury sewage treatment works has been approved by Oxfordshire County Council.

EcoGenR8, a developer of organic waste and renewable energy projects,  is continuing to work with Thames Water, who are taking forward the development, to develop the Environmental Permit application and technical aspects of the project.

The facility will use the proven anaerobic digestion technology to treat food waste and will produce enough renewable electricity to power up to 3,900 homes in the area.  Further details are available in the projects section of the EcoGenR8 website.

 

Planning submitted for food waste facility

We are pleased to announce that the planning application for a food waste anaerobic digestion treatment facility at Thames Water’s Banbury sewage treatment works has been submitted.

EcoGenR8 has been working with Thames Water, who are taking forward the development which will convert food waste into renewable electricity to power up to 3,900 homes using anaerobic digestion.

The planning application is due to be considered by the Planning & Regulation Committee on 2nd December 2013.  Copies of the application and supporting documents are available in the projects section of the EcoGenR8 website (www.ecogenr8.com), or via Oxfordshire County Council’s website.
