Working with Gwynedd Council on Anaerobic Digestion Scheme
26 May 2009
Our Environmental Projects Team has been appointed to provide legal advice to Gwynedd Council's pathfinder Anaerobic Digestion (AD) Scheme, Project GwyriAD. We are now advising on 5 AD schemes.
Project GwyriAD is part of a coordinated suite of measures proposed by the Department for the Environment, Sustainability & Housing within the Welsh Assembly Government. The Project is likely to involve a combination of capital funding from WAG and the chosen private sector partner as well as revenue funding support in the form of additional Sustainable Waste Management Grant.
Nigel Campbell, Director of Environmental Projects at Burges Salmon said:
"This is going to be a complex project with several novel features around the multi-sourced capital and revenue funding, the technology and the potential inclusion of legacy assets and technologies. We are looking forward to working with Peter Evans [Project Leader for Project GwyriAD] and his team on this interesting project. As anaerobic digestion is seen in both England and Wales as one of the most environmentally appropriate and sustainable ways of combining appropriate food waste management with power generation, there will be many lessons learned in this procurement which will be valuable for others."
