Saving over


tons of CO2 a year

We plan to open our renewable energy plant in August 2017 when it will generate just over 41MW of green electricity which is enough to supply 78,000 homes and save over 150,000 tons of CO2 every year. It’s difficult to visualise how much that is but would look the same as 250,000 really big hot air balloons and the saving is equal to 1.75 million plane flights to Paris.

Behind the project

Our Biomass power plant is one of 15-20 similar sized biomass plants that are operating or under construction in the UK at the moment, all of which generate clean, green energy which is great for the environment.

Community benefits

We are a new industry in your community and we know that means we need to work hard to make sure our project brings as many benefits as possible.




How much wood will you need to burn very year for the power plant to run at full capacity?

We are working with Stobart Biomass Products Ltd., a subsidiary of the Stobart Group, who also part own the Eddie Stobart logistics company. We will use around 260,000 T of locally generated waste wood per year which requires 40 lorry loads of waste wood chip every day to generate the amount of power we are hoping to achieve. On average every person in the UK generates approximately 100kg of waste wood products per year, so the Yorkshire and Humber region alone generates over twice the amount of waste wood that is required by our plant.
