Engineering and construction company M+W group has selected GE's Jenbacher gas engines and Monsal advanced anaerobic digestion system for the new “Eco Park” waste treatment and biogas-to-energy facility being built by Suez Recycling and Recovery U.K. in Shepperton, Surrey, England.
With the help of GE’s Monsal anaerobic digestion system, the Eco Park will convert 40,000 tonnes of food waste annually convert into biogas. The biogas will then be used to fuel two of GE’s Jenbacher J416 biogas engines to generate renewable electricity and heat.
