A £1.1 million biomass plant has been opened in Gloucestershire which will see waste wood from owners Markey Group' kitchen fittings business.

The plant is planned to burn as much as 2,350 tonnes of waste wood, including chipboard dust and residual off-cuts, from the company's subsidiary Premiere Kitchens.

Let's Recycle also reports that the plant will create sufficient heating and hot water in order to meet the needs of the Group's 8.5 acre site at Hardwicke in the county.

According to the website, Paul Markey, group director, said: "Our new biomass facility has a key role to play in reducing our carbon footprint and it’s exciting to think that we’re helping boost Gloucestershire’s green credentials by generating our own eco-friendly energy."

Also present at the opening was Dr Asli Tamer Vestlund, the deputy technical manager at the Furniture Industry Research Association.

He described his role in opening the facility as "an honour".

KMS Baltics is a partnership of independent companies providing forestry investment management in Estonia, Latvia, the UK and Romania.
