Green light for £2m biomass energy vision

Renewable energy specialists VG Consulting and VG Energy are playing major roles in driving forward a Merseyside waste management business’ £2million biomass plans.

CCC Waste Management, based in Kirkby, is taking positive steps toward onsite energy management and has now gained planning consent for the project.

The £2m investment by CCC Waste Management demonstrates its desire to future proof energy costs and to create business and environmental sustainability.

Sean Munro, Director of CCC Group, said: “Throughout our history, sustainability and the environment has always been a driving factor for us. We assist many organisations with environmentally aware processes in waste management”.

He added: “This is a substantial investment and after due diligence we realised that this approach will add value to our operations, our customer base and the wider community now and for the future.

“We are a business recognised for continued investment in new technology, machinery and staff and with our energy investment now, we are adding competitive advantage for us and our customers.”

Ayrshire-headquartered VG Consulting, along with project planning consultant LJ Architecture, has successfully gained consent for CCC Waste Management to install 4MW of biomass boiler systems with an integrated drying floor.

With the biomass boilers being fuelled with Grade A/B waste wood the business can look forward to a sustainable future.

VG Consulting Managing Director Dave Anderson said: “Technology matching energy demand is critical in these circumstances but it also requires a business to have the right approach to energy needs now and for the future.

“CCC Waste has shown with its investment and approach that this is a long term strategy and we congratulate them.”
