South Humber represents a unique opportunity in the UK for investment in land-based power generation facilities, including refuse-derived fuel.

South Humber is the chosen location for Altalto Immingham, Europe’s first commercial waste-to-jet-fuel plant by Velocys and the South Humber Bank Energy Centre by EPUKI, the £300M waste-to-energy power station.

With sector expertise, large industrial sites and a supportive local authority, South Humber is certainly process industry friendly. Furthermore, the area offers a ready supply of Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) for businesses investing in innovative waste-to-energy and waste-to-fuel operations.

Thanks in part to its ports and logistics infrastructure, South Humber is home to a well-established process industries cluster, with considerable expertise in traditional sectors including petro-chemicals, chemical manufacturing and gas production and storage.

And now, the combination of logistics and local expertise is proving key to the attraction of a new generation of innovative process technology companies.

Each year, more than 2.5 million tonnes of Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) is exported from the UK to continental Europe, with the Humber ports handling almost one-third and Immingham the largest share. That is providing a ready supply of RDF for companies establishing innovative waste-to-energy and waste-to fuel plants in the area.
