[biofuelwatch] Re: London's cooking waste to fuel power station

Does this mean that 2OC (was Blue-NG) will no longer be seeking to burn rape-seed oil/palm oil ?

Did the planning permission encompass this "alternative fuel" ?


" 2OC has signed a 20-year deal worth over £200m with Thames Water to provide renewable power and heat for the UK's biggest sewage treatment works at Beckton in East London. The company's nearby Combined Heat and intelligent Power (CHiP) plant will pioneer the use of fuels derived from fats, oils and greases (FOGs) which would otherwise be tipped down the drain or dumped in landfill. Other fuel sources include oil wastes from food manufacturers, processors and tallow (animal fats). There will be no virgin oils from field or plantation grown crops. Thames has committed to working with 2OC to supply well over half of its fuel demand from FOGs from the start of operation in 2015, with the intention of increasing that over time. Thames, Britain's biggest water company, says that FOGs are responsible for most of the blockages in its 109,000 km of sewers and removing them costs £1m a month."

Biofuels are a wide range of fuels which are in some way derived from biomass.

Your idea?
