In 2013/14, Syngas Products designed, built and commissioned the UK’s first commercial-scale advanced thermal Energy Recovery Facility. The Avonmouth Energy Recovery Facility is sized to process 100,000 tonnes per annum of Refuse-Derived Fuel and generates low carbon electricity.
The Avonmouth Energy Recovery Facility, near Bristol in the South West of England, is situated adjacent to a 200,000 tonnes per annum Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) facility. The Avonmouth Energy Recovery Facility is sized to process 100,000 tonnes per annum of Refuse-Derived Fuel, resulting in the diversion of substantial quantities of RDF from being exported to Europe and the local generation of renewable energy.

Syngas Products was the principal contractor and delivered the facility for a UK waste management company. Syngas Products developed the thermal plant and control system in-house. The thermal plant comprises 16 advanced thermal modules and combustors, which supply two boilers and steam turbines.
