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.
Your feedback is important to us and is essential in helping to shape our plans in the lead up to our Development Consent Order submission seeking consent for the Facility. You can access the online feedback form here.
Please note, all feedback forms and comments must be received by Friday 19 October when Phase One consultation ends.
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.
