We were orginally fuelled by poultry litter. In May 2000 the plant was re-commissioned to burn Meat and Bone Meal (MBM) due to a government scheme to combat the BSE crisis.
We employ specific combustion technology, with power generation being delivered from a steam turbine. The electricity generated is fed to the local distribution network.
Combustion ashes, which are produced from the process, are rich in Phosphate and trace elements. They are spread to land to displace energy intensive manufactured fertilisers.
