In July 2007, Oaktech Environmental signed a contract with Avondale Environmental Ltd. to commence the Design Development of a 70,000 tonnes per annum ArrowBio facility at the Avondale Landfill Site in Falkirk, Scotland.
The ArrowBio process is described as a unique, water-based mechanical-biological treatment for solid waste, which includes anaerobic digestion stages.
ArrowBio’s strengths are stated as residing in its unique ability to reclaim resources for recycling and produce green energy from the biodegradable residues through simple, flexible and effective design.
Avondale Environmental, who own and operate the Avondale landfill in the Falkirk area just off junction 4 of the M9 motorway, have chosen ArrowBio as their preferred technology partner for the development of a processing facility for treating mixed waste from both household and commercial sources. Waste will be diverted from landfill with recyclable materials recovered and renewable electricity generated for supply to the national grid.
Upon completion of the Design Development phase, the construction of the Plant will take 16 months, subject to receiving the necessary consent. This will provide nearby Local Authorities with the opportunity of moving some way towards landfill diversion targets required by the EU Landfill Directive.
Following on from this success, Oaktech Environmental, distributors of the ArrowBio process in the UK & Eire, in collaboration with Monsal Ltd., UK market leader for the provision of advanced anaerobic digestion and biogas related technology, will be jointly exhibiting at the RWM Exhibition, NEC Birmingham on 11th – 13th September.
Do visit them at Stand 1100 for details on how they will be working together to deliver the ArrowBio Falkirk project, as well as for updates on other of their projects currently underway in London and Northern Ireland.
