Ener-G, a Polish-British joint-venture is building an installation which will produce power from the garbage.This week, an installation will be built in Legnica which will produce electric power from the litter. Ener-G Polska, a company with the British capital, is going to invest PLN 6m (EUR 1.5m) in this project.
The installation will be located on 14 ha of municipal garbage site. The municipal garbage company LPGK will not invest in the project but is going to earn from the power sold in the future. The bio-gas from the garbage will feed the gas engine which will feed the power generator in turn.
“The litter gathered here may allow to produce 300 cubic meters of bio-gas every hour, which means that a 400 KW engine could be installed. This is enough to deliver energy to 4,000 flats”, Jozef Wasinkiewicz, LPGK CEO said.
Energia Pro distributing company is going to buy the energy from the investor. The project will be launched with a six month delay due to formalities connected to the construction works. LPGK was the first Polish company to sign a cooperation agreement with Ener-G Polska. The latter is implementing similar projects in Bydgoszcz and Czestochowa.
