Big Step Forward for EnergyPark Peterborough As Technology Licence Agreement signed with Tetronics
Peterborough Renewable Energy Ltd (PREL) is delighted to announce that a Technology License Agreement has been signed with Tetronics Ltd, the world leaders in DC plasma arc systems. The Agreement gives PREL permission to use Tetronics’ patented technology to deal with Air Pollution Control (APC) residues created onsite at EnergyPark Peterborough.
The groundâ€breaking EnergyPark Peterborough project, which was granted consent by the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) in November 2009, will be the first sustainable biomassâ€from waste power station of its kind in
Following the gasification of a clean biomass fuel, the hazardous Air Pollution Control (APC) residues, which would traditionally be sent to landfill, will instead be collected and safely transferred to the colocated plasma unit. Tetronics’ plasma technology will then separate and destroy all the hazardous components in the residue, generating a totally safe inert product, similar to granite. This nonâ€hazardous product called Plasmarok® can then be reâ€used as a glass or building aggregate in a range of applications, achieving close to zero residues remaining.
Commenting on the deal, CEO of Tetronics, Stephen Davies, added:
“We are delighted to sign the Technology Licence Agreement with PREL, a pioneering company
leading the way in waste management in this country.
“Tetronics has decades of experience in the UK, Europe and Asia, processing problematic wastes, such as APC residues, in a stable and costâ€effective way.
“We are very confident that this development will be a trailblazer for others to follow.”
