Middlesbrough AD plant wins first Green Investment Bank cash

The first two projects to benefit from the Green Investment Bank are an energy-from-waste plant and an energy efficiency retrofit

An energy-from-waste project has been chosen as one of the first two investments under the government’s recently launched new Green Investment Bank (GIB).

The 5.1-megawatt facility is being built by Greenlight AD Power and Earthly Energy in Middlesbrough, Teesside, and will be the largest anaerobic digestion (AD) plant in the UK. It will have the capacity to deal with 100,000 tonnes of waste per year.

The GIB, which has £3bn worth of seed funding to use over the next 2.5 years, aims to support sustainable infrastructure projects and will prioritise offshore wind, energy efficiency, and waste and bioenergy (ENDS Report, November 2012).
