  4. Renewable CHP plan for Kellingley Colliery

Renewable CHP plan for Kellingley Colliery

13 Sep 2012

A £200m renewable energy facility could be built at Kellingley Colliery in North Yorkshire.

The scheme was announced by Peel Environmental, which said it would submit a planning application in early 2013. The centre would convert up to 280,000 tonnes of non-hazardous waste into energy per year. If approved, the Southmoor Energy Centre would create up to 38 jobs, the company said.

Peel Environmental said the centre could provide a low-cost, stable energy supply to Kellingley Colliery helping to cut costs.

Richard Barker, development manager at the company, said: "If built, our proposed energy centre will operate an efficient combined heat and power system, using waste as a fuel to release energy.
