Yorkshire Water has received planning approval from Leeds City Council for the construction of a new £72M sludge treatment and anaerobic digestion facility in Leeds, UK.The contract has been awarded to Black & Veatch with the civil engineering element being delivered by Clugston Construction.The new facility — to be located at Leed’s Knostrop waste water treatment works— will replace the existing sludge and bio-solid incinerator, which was built in 1993, and enable the more efficient and effective treatment of sewage combined with the additional benefit of renewable power production from the waste water effluent. The plant will have a capacity to process 131t of dry sludge daily and will generate enough renewable energy to meet 55% of Knostrop’s energy needs — enough to power 8,000 households.It will also help the company reduce its carbon emissions by 15%, and contribute to achieving the planned target of recycling 94% of the region’s sludge by 2020.The facility is planned to be complete in 2019.
