  • Q3 2021: end of construction and commissioning
  • 8,000 tons of CO2 saved per year
  • 7,500 MWh of heat and 950 MWh of electricity produced per year

Paris, June 14 2021 – Kyotherm announces the financing of a biomass CHP plant in the United Kingdom for an industrial customer in the wood sector.

The installation will supply heat to a network connecting several sheds on site. In addition, it will supply heat and power to the customer’s processes. Since the wooden products of the client go through a heat treatment process to avoid case hardening, the energy needs of the site are quite high.

8,000 tons of CO2 saved per year thanks to biomass

The biomass CHP plant will produce 7,500 MWh of renewable heat and 950 MWh of low-carbon electricity.  Given that the installation will eliminate the need of an oil-fired boiler, the project will generate carbon savings estimated at around 8,000 tons of CO2 per year. For instance, this represents a reduction equivalent to the annual CO2 emissions of 1,500 UK citizens.

Recovery of production waste

The plant will be fueled with wood waste from the customer’s industrial process. This project will therefore have a limited impact on the precious wood resources in accordance with the principles of circular economy.

Kyotherm confirms its strong implantation in the UK 

Funding for this project brings the total installed or under construction capacity of Kyotherm’s projects in the UK to 55 MW. This project therefore confirms the strength of the partnerships forged by Kyotherm across the UK.
