TEG secures £21m for AD plant

TEG secures £21m for AD plant

Organic waste group TEG has secured funding to construct a £21m waste facility at East London’s Dagenham Dock.

The facility will be capable of processing 49,000 tonnes per annum of food and green waste via AD and In-vessel composting (IVC) technology on a 4.7 acre site.

On site will be the first AD plant of its kind in the capital which will generate approximately 1.4MW of electricity, sufficient to power around 2,000 homes.

The company also claims it will produce over 36,000 tonnes per year of AD digestate and 14,000 tonnes per year of compost for agricultural use.

The feedstock will come from source segregated food waste and mixed food and green waste produced by local households, commercial and manufacturing enterprises.

Foresight Group funds have committed £11m into a new Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV), TEG Biogas, to allow for the construction and operation of the new processing plant.

TEG will construct and operate the plant on behalf of the SPV under an Engineering, Procurement and Construction Contract (EPC Contract), which is expected to generate approximately £16m in revenues for TEG over the period of construction.

Work is due to commence in September 2012 and is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2014.
