Glanford Power Station
We are a renewable energy generator specialising in converting Meat and Bone Meal into electricity, operated and maintained by our 23 strong in-house team. We are an integral part of the local economy generating jobs and investment through the local supply chain.
We were originally commissioned in 1993 to burn poultry litter, then re-engineered and refurbished in 2000 to generate electricity from Meat and Bone Meal (MBM).
We have excellent availability and provide an invaluable service to the local rendering industry by way of a secure year round outlet for the disposal and recovery of biomass. Our combustion ash is sold as fertiliser to the British agricultural industry making this a truly sustainable business model.
We have strong environmental awareness with a continued focus on improving our green credentials and are ISO 14001 and BS OHSAS 18001 certified. Our output reduces CO2 emissions by some 34,000 tonnes each year by displacing the equivalent amount of generation from gas fired plants. This equates to taking more than 13,000 cars off the UK's roads.
