Davyhulme (Waste , Active, )

 General Information.

Location in the UK : Wales, Manchester    
Type of installation: Waste    on/offshore: on
Turbines :0  Capacity : 5.6 MW
Approx Date of 1st power generation: 2011 planned


Sewage created by residents across Manchester is to be recycled to power about 500 homes in the city.
The £4.3m biomass (energy from waste) scheme, thought to be the first of its kind in the UK, is being tried out at waste water treatment plants at Davyhulme in Manchester.
The project has received funding from the government department Defra, through the Waste and Resources Action Programme (Wrap).
Thanks for the correction from Mike
This installation, owned and operated by UU is a sludge gas engine, not a "biomass" fuelled power station. It could be argued that sewage sludge is a biofuel, but the common interpretation of biomass is vegetation used as fuel - crops, wood, trees etc.
