EMPLOYEE-owned premium paper and board producer Tullis Russell picked up the award in the Renewing Scotland category at December’s Scottish Green Energy Awards in Edinburgh. The environmental awards, now in their 13th year, recognise the best in renewable energy talent, projects and innovation across Scotland. The company received the award for its part in a multi-million pound project with RWE Innogy UK to replace the coal and gas-fired power station at its Markinch base with a new state of the art Biomass CHP facility.
The new Biomass CHP at Tullis Russell has been built, and will be owned and operated by, RWE Innogy UK. It is providing all of Tullis Russell’s electricity and steam requirements and is also feeding power into the local grid. Said to be the largest of its type in the UK, the new plant uses a combination of end-of-life recovered wood as its main fuel source topped up with virgin wood and provides the Fife-based business with an environmentally friendly source of renewable energy. The CHP technology used in the plant will result in a reduction in fossil-fuel carbon dioxide emissions by an estimated 250,000 tonnes per annum, reducing the company’s carbon emissions by more than 70%.
