Project Scope

A large recycling site produces RDF from much of the waste they process. Novalux recommend that they diversify their business by installing a 14MWth Sugimat thermal oil boiler and 6.2MWe Turboden Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC).

The combined system will allow the recycling site to produce their own heat and power on site which they can use to cut down on costs or export to the grid under a PPA, creating a new income stream. Whilst saving an £85 gate fee, the business can also charge other companies for the disposal of their RDF, use waste as fuel and help contribute to a clean environment.
