Aldridge MP Wendy Morton visits local energy pioneers set to open the UK’s first municipal waste gasification plant

21 August 2019

Wendy Morton MP Member of Parliament of the United Kingdom

My visit to Kew Technology was a great opportunity to learn more about how the company are promoting higher efficiencies of waste energy. Clearly the innovative processes being used by Kew Technology will have a major impact both locally in Aldridge and nationally.

As climate change continues to be a top priority for the Government in seeking to hit our 2050 climate goals it is good to know that companies from our local area are at the cutting edge of helping us meet our climate challenge.

Mark Johnson Commercial Manager at Kew Technology

We were really pleased to welcome Wendy Morton MP to Kew Technology and discuss the opportunity for thermally converting waste into a diverse range of valuable energy vectors in the UK.

We’re looking forward to operationally testing the plant in late August & September 2019, as part of our hot commissioning programme, which will see clean renewable energy be supplied to the energy grid, for the first time.

It’s a great project using technology that has so many opportunities for future community energy solutions that can be scaled to meet the drive for green fuels or chemicals.

Over the next five years, it will be important for Kew Technology to find the most effective focus area to maximise the potential of waste gasification.
