West Bromwich MP Adrian Bailey visits the UK’s first municipal waste gasification plant as it achieves capability to supply energy to the grid, for the first time

26 September 2019

This is an inspirational project which has the potential to play an important part in providing green energy worldwide. It is particularly pleasing to see a company in the Black country spearheading the drive to achieve our climate change targets whist providing investment and jobs locally.

It was a pleasure to welcome Adrian Bailey MP to the plant and discuss the opportunities, this technology could provide for the local area and nationally.

Achieving the capability to supply clean renewable energy to the grid, for the first time, is a fantastic milestone, as a result of our hot commissioning programme. We’re looking forward to continue our operational testing phase, concluding early 2020.

I’m delighted that Adrian Bailey MP visited the plant to mark our fantastic milestone. This project is a great example on how this technology can have 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, the priority should be for Kew Technology to discover the most effective focus area to harness the potential of waste gasification.
