About this event

Yorkshire Water have the responsibility of treating the Waste Water for the Bradford catchment area with a Population Equivalent of 500,000. Their sludge disposal strategy follow-ing banning of sea disposal 17 years ago focussed predomi-nantly on Incineration - an energy intensive process. These facilities are now reaching the end of their operable lives and a business case driven sustainable alternative solution has been chosen using Bio-Energy plants. Esholt is the lead project that utilises thermal hydrolysis to increase the exist-ing digestion process, generate electricity under the ROC scheme from increased biogas production, and produce an enhanced quality sludge. When fully commissioned, Esholt WwTW will essentially be energy neutral representing the UK’s first such “Energy Centre”.
