Process - Power / Energy
Melia Smith & Jones' knowledge and understanding of the waste process sector, and Energy from Waste (EfW) plant in particular, has led into other projects that involve Power/Energy production utilising other fuels. This has opened new opportunities in bio-mass, for example, which whilst using wood, or similar fuel sources, are very comparable to EfW plants and therefore are familiar.
MSJ are working closely with technology providers specialising in burning renewable sources of low grade timber to produce heat and power. Various schemes have been put forwards for planning approval and budgeting the civil elements.
Energy from Waste Facilities (EfWs)
MSJ have been involved in many of the recently constructed Energy from Waste facilities built in the UK and have developed, for example, a detailed civil work specification specifically for this type of project.
