Moscow City Awarded Tender to WTEI Consortium

Today, the City of Moscow awarded a tender to build a new waste-to-energy plant to the Waste to Energy International (WTEI) consortium.

As a member of the “RIKS” consortium, WTEI took participation in this tender offering for financing, construction and operating of the new sludge processing plant in Moscow, Russia. The plant with capacity of 105,000 tons of sludge per year should be constructed in the Moscow region in the next 2 years and be in operation for the next 20 years. Today, all bids except ours were rejected, which was the decision of tender commission and was published on the official site of the Moscow Government.

Concession agreement will be signed between the Government of Moscow and the consortium, which unites European, Russian, Canadian and Middle East market leaders. Investment value of the project is more than 205 million EUR.

Genuine Milestone for WTEI

Waste to Energy International (WTEI) take participation in tender for construction new sludge burning plant on 19th sludge place of GUP «Mosvodocanal».

With capacity of 105,000 tons of incinerated sludge per year and investment value about 200 million EUR this will be the greatest plant in Russia and one of the biggest in Europe.

This project is a genuine milestone for WTEI. In the whole Russian Federation the thermal treatment of waste is currently just making a start.

On the other hand it is necessary to develop in the medium till long term a waste disposal strategy for dealing with a volume of annually roughly 130 million tons of domestic waste in a manner which is economical and friendly to the environment.

The new plant in Moscow will help to solve the waste problem of the capital and to promote the application of modern waste incineration technologies in the federation.

UK’s Power Path: are there too many question marks and not enough answers?

Published: Thursday 20 January 2011

The UK has 19 reactors generating about 18% of its electricity, and all of these but one will be retired by 2023. Yet the first new-generation plant will only become operational by 2018. Despite improvements in the energy efficiency of electrical devices, the country’s 59 GWe peak winter demand could increase by 64% over the next fifty years to reach around 97 GWe by 2060. Although the UK government recently announced its agreement to subsidise the price that nuclear companies get paid for generating electricity, a tangible action plan remains vague. Is the UK nuclear energy market on track to meet future demand?

Renewable Replacement for Coal Successful in Test Burn; First of its Kind in Western U.S.

Renewable Replacement for Coal Successful in Test Burn; First of its Kind in Western U.S.

Pittsburg, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) February 09, 2011

California utility Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and power generator GWF Power Systems, L.P. today reported a successful test burn of RFT’s BioCoal, a new clean, high-energy renewable fuel. Twelve hundred pounds of BioCoal were co-fired during the two-hour test at GWF’s Pittsburg petcoke power plant, and was the first of its kind test in the western United States. The test generated approximately one megawatt hour of electric energy, which was delivered to PG&E without changes in operations.

The BioCoal was produced from woody debris provided by PG&E’s vegetation management team using RFT’s demonstration mobile torrefaction processor. BioCoal is a carbon-neutral, coal-grade fuel that is free of mercury, sulfur and toxic ash.

Davos, Switzerland (PRWeb UK) January 28, 2011

Announcing the opening of two zero-carbon stores in Thailand and the Czech Republic, Sir Terry Leahy said governments needed to create the regulatory environment that will allow private companies to lead the way in bringing about economic growth that is sustainable in every sense, working to make green choices cheaper, simpler and more attractive to consumers.

“Regulation has its place in setting the right framework for [action on climate change, for example through an effective carbon price. But I believe in the power of the market and in people’s creativity to tackle major challenges. Governments can help create the right framework, but they cannot match the energy and innovation of the market.”
