New biomass energy for LG Arena

The NEC Group has announced that it is installing a biomass power generation facility at the newly renamed LG Arena. General Manager Guy Dunstan told IQ magazine “we have just received our licence to  open the recycling centre on our site” adding “we’ve invested £300,000 converting an existing building which will handle cardboard, wood, glass and some metals and this should be open this month”. To this will be added a biomass generator to further reduce the waste the Areana and Conference centre send to landfill as well as providing more environmentally friendly energy for the complex. The NEC said it aimed to reduce its power consumption by b60% by 2050 and the group are also looking at a wood burning generator to ustilse local waste wood to provide electricity and hot water.
