A public exhibition is being held by Proteus PR on Wednesday 26 September between 2pm and 8pm at Stewartby Village Hall to share FCC’s proposals with the local community and to answer questions and listen to feedback.
The proposals are for:-
CROP-BASED ANAEROBIC DIGESTION (AD) FACILITY
The proposed AD facility would use on site and locally grown energy crops (such as maize) to provide heat and power for FCC Environment STEWARTBY based operations, as well as a self- sufficient supply of organic fertiliser that would be used for ongoing restoratation of areas of the landfill to quality, agricultural land. It would not accept any waste. According to a Proteus source t would only be in operation for 5 weeks of the year when the maize crop is harvested.
SINGLE FEED-IN TARIFF (FIT) WIND TURBINE
To generate further renewable energy onsite, a wind turbine is proposed with a maximum height of 87m to the tip of the blades. The turbine would produce enough renewable energy to power the equivalent of around 300 homes each year. It would also be eligible for the Governments Feed-in Tariff scheme, launched in 2010 to increase the uptake of small and medium scale renewable energy generation.
