Worcester, Southern Africa
Creating a sustainable partnership
The Worcester waste-to-value plant in Southern Africa is designed to produce methane-rich biogas from wastewater received by a nearby poultry processing facility. The energy generated from this biogas is exported back to the neighbouring facility, creating a sustainable partnership in doing so.
The biogas is upgraded and utilised to generate energy in combined heat and power units. The remaining wastewater is treated and can be safely discharged into the sewer.
- The Worcester W2V plant treats up to 3,000m3 of raw abattoir effluent per day
- It can generate up to 1.55MW of electricity and 836kW of thermal energy
- The plant is capable of running in island mode to continue providing power when the local grid falls away.
