Boston Alternative Energy Facility is a state-of-the-art power-generation plant which will lead the way in land-based renewable power across the UK.

This national significant infrastructure project, backed by Alternative Use Boston Projects Ltd, a privately-owned project company, will generate 102MW* of renewable energy, of which 80MW* will be exported to the National Grid and the rest will be used by the facility.

Electricity will be generated in a secure, clean and affordable way.

What will happen at the Boston Alternative Energy Facility?

The process by which power will be generated is called gasification. This process will use a fuel (or feedstock) called refuse derived fuel (RDF). The RDF is made from non-recyclable household waste and will be baled and transported by ship to the Boston Alternative Energy Facility from UK ports. This will minimise road traffic movements to and from the site.

The proposed site at the Riverside Industrial Estate in Boston is adjacent to the Haven – and is within an area allocated for industrial development by the local planning authority – so is the ideal location.
