AV Dawson’s port facility in Teesside, U.K., has been announced as the first site for a revolutionary new alternative fuel project that will support ambitions to reduce landfill and global carbon emissions.
Waste Knot Energy has secured funding from Gresham House’s British Strategic Investment Fund to build its first fuel pelleting plant in Middlesbrough.
The plant will produce Waste Knot’s Green Knot branded pellets using non-recyclable waste—otherwise destined for landfill or for another country’s waste facilities. The high-calorific value of the pellets makes them a reliable, low-emission bulk alternative to coal and pet-coke for energy-intensive industries—such as cement and steel.
