DB3 Project

Scunthorpe Energy Recovery Centre

DB3 have been procured by McFadden Building and Civil Engineering Limited to deliver the design for a new state-of-the-art 49.9MW Energy Recovery Centre in North Lincolnshire. The scheme, which also includes a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), an Incinerator Bottom Ash (IBA) facility and options for onsite hydrogen production, will process up to 500,000 tonnes of waste each year and will generate enough sustainable electricity for over 60,000 homes.

The proposal allows for waste to be delivered to the site by either road or rail containers. Waste will be pre-sorted in the MRF where automated technologies will remove plastics, papers and cardboard as well as ferrous and non-ferrous metals all of which will be sent onwards for recycling. Once all the recyclables have been extracted the remaining waste will be treated with the heat generated from the combustion process used to create steam to power a turbine and excess steam being exported to local industries or businesses.

The IBA, which is a non-hazardous ash from the end of the process, contains recyclable materials and will be treated in the IBA facility prior to being recycled into aggregate for the construction industry.
