Ellgia secures energy-from-waste contract with Ferrybridge

UK recycling and waste management company Ellgia Limited has announced a new partnership with Ferrybridge Multifuel Energy Limited (FM1) for a spot contract supply of refuse derived fuel (RDF) to generate energy from waste.

The RDF will be pre-processed at the Ellgia Scunthorpe Depot, after which it will be delivered to FM1 where it will be used to create electricity. FM1 operates a £300-million multifuel plant on land owned by Scottish energy company SSE at Ferrybridge Power Station near Knottingley in West Yorkshire. The plant has an installed electrical capacity of 68 megawatts, enough to power around 160,000 homes.
