Solvert Limited To Establish Manufacturing Plant To Produce Chemicals From Organic Waste

January 27, 2011: 09:30 AM EST

Solvert Limited plans the UK’s first plant to convert organic waste in to chemicals. It’s the brainchild of industry expert and ex-ICI man Kris Wadrop, who is looking at sites on Teeside like the former ICI site at Billingham. Initial funding of £170,000 came from Northstar Ventures and grant support, and Solvert will seek £1.5 million in further finance. Solvert aims to start operations by 2015 and is currently testing the process. The plant will use produce renewable electricity as well as n-butanol, acetone and hydrogen. Butanol and acetone are currently produced from crude oil.
