Elm Energy & Recycling (U.K.) Ltd.

American-owned Elm Energy & Recycling (U.K.) Ltd. is developing a tire-fueled electrical power plant in Britain using technology from Glen Ellyn, IL-based Basic Environmental Engineering. Construction of the $80 million facility began in April and should be completed by fail of 1993, at which time it will be capable of burning some 10 million car and truck tires annually, about half of the U.K.'s annual scrap tire accumulation. The Wolverhampton, England plant will burn whole tires to produce steam to drive electrical generators, and it is estimated that it will generate 25 megawatts of electricity for sale to the local utility company. Multi-stage combustion systems, developed and patented by Basic Environmental, are being manufactured overseas by Basic's British licensee, Basic Energy U.K. As part of the arrangement, BEE is providing engineering drawings, special parts and technical assistance to Basic Energy U.K. The plant will use five of Basic's Model 7000B solid waste boiler systems, rated at 78 BTUs per hour each. The plant has a minimum design life of 20 years. Residual materials such as zinc oxide and steel wire will be recycled.
