£10m wood refinery for Goole 36

£10m wood refinery for Goole 36

A £10m wood refinery at Goole will revolutionise supply to the UK’s biomass energy market. Construction will soon begin on the plant, which is the first of its kind in the UK, at the Goole 36 industrial park.

Once up and running next year it will produce 50,000 tonnes of pellets, using 100 per cent UK-sourced wood, the vast majority of which will be sourced from a 100-mile radius. A significant proportion will come from North Yorkshire

Once operating from 2019 the plant will produce 50,000 tonnes of pellets, using 100 per cent UK-sourced wood, the vast majority of which will be sourced from a 100-mile radius. A significant proportion will come from North Yorkshire. Developers Y Pellets already distributes wood pellets to customers with biomass boilers, including care homes, hotels and public sector organisations, imported into the Humber to its 5,000-tonne storage facility at Goole Docks. The new plant, which will create ten manufacturing jobs, as well as jobs for drivers, will be built and operated by ARC Applied Sciences, which constructed the world’s first plant in Austria.
