World First Full-Scale Enzymatic Waste to Energy Plant: Progress in Pictures

The rapid progress being made on Dong Energy’s first full-scale REnescience plant, which uses enzymes to recover energy from mixed MSW and improve the anaerobic process, has been documented in pictures.

The steelwork that will form the digestate treatment building has also been constructed, as have the control room area for this part of the plant.

The rapid progress being made on Dong Energy’s first full-scale REnescience plant, which uses enzymes to recover energy from mixed MSW and improve the anaerobic process, has been documented in pictures.

“All the anaerobic digestion tanks where the organic matter will be broken down, have now been erected. Both the biogas flare and the gas engine stack are also in place now, and work is also continuing on establishing concrete plinths for the associated pipework.”

The Danish energy firm said that it is now focusing the planning work on the reactor section delivery which is scheduled for November 2016.

The REnescience plant in Northwich is expected to be operational in early 2017.

“The construction of the REnescience plant continues full steam ahead, so that we can be ready in spring next year.

The construction is continuing on the waste reception bunker and the concrete plinths where the REnescience reactors will be situated, and we’re also progressing with the earthworks at the front of the plant, which will create space for lay down areas,” says Flemming Ravnholt Kanstrup.

DONG Energy added that it will finance, build and operate the plant in the North West of England and will also look into the possibilities for building similar plants in other places around the world.
