The site went into commercial operation this summer, collecting Category C wood waste from local authorities, civic amenity sites, and commercial and industrial sources (see article

Stobart Energy will supply the remaining 200,000 tonnes of raw material for the installation.

Eco Sustaniable Solutions will send an average of ten truckloads of wood waste per day to Margam Green, working with local and national carriers.

To supply

The wood comes from household recycling centers in Dorset under a contract Eco has held since 2008 and from several commercial recycling centers in Hampshire.

The material had already been sent to facilities in Sweden for processing.

Commenting on the deal, Peter Hardy, Commercial Director of Eco, said: “This is a big deal for us, but it also has the added benefit of adding to our green credentials. Previously, the wood was transported to Southampton and then shipped to Sweden for use in their power plants. The wood now remains in this country and is used to fuel British homes.

“We expect our carbon footprint to be further reduced by providing wood to Margam Green rather than going by boat to Sweden. “

Founded in 1994, Eco employs 41 people and has an annual turnover of £ 12 million. The company processes 250,000 tonnes of material annually at Parley, including organic waste and wood.

The company currently processes 300,000 tonnes of organic material annually at four facilities, including its anaerobic digestion (AD) plant at Piddlehinton near Dorchester.
