The plant is capable of processing up to 120,000 tonnes of food waste every year. It is currently producing enough energy to power up to 6,000 homes, diverting to the National Grid. The food waste treated at the plant is mainly from commercial and industrial from the likes of Sainsbury’s and Bakkavor. Through the AD process, the plant also produces a soil improver which is used as a type of compost.

The plant is the flagship facility for a series of ‘super’ AD facilities that Biffa is hoping to develop.

KIRK UK designed, supplied and installed five 4,800sq m Glass-Fused-to-Steel Digestion Tanks complete with Stainless Steel Roofs.

Manufactured by world leaders in tank technology, KIRK’s GFS tanks are of the highest quality, with a range of coatings available to Clients.

There are a number of benefits to using Glass-fused-to-steel tanks, which include:

  • High levels of corrosion resistance
  • proven design life
  • low maintenance
  • no need for re-coating or painting
  • quick installation
  • easy to relocate

KIRK UK were involved with the project from an early point, allowing them to develop aa close relationship with BIFFA, reviewing the project requirements and providing recommendations on the most suitable combination of products, materials and configuration to maximise the asset life and operational performance of the project, whilst providing the most advantageous commercial solution.

    What is a Stakeholder?

    A stakeholder is a Mircosite that has the power to highlight a product or service, launch a promotion, or promote brand awareness to the construction industry in a way that full websites or more traditional marketing cannot.

    All stakeholders have the ability to have their latest press releases and case studies promoted across the UK Construction Online platform. UK Construction Online is updated daily, with the latest news across all sectors within the construction industry and all stakeholders are promoted on both social media and to a mailing list of over 122,000 subscribers.
