Replacement of weighbridge control panels
We give high priority to accessibility and ease of handling. We are examining how transport can be more efficient in all traffic movements to and from Twence. We are replacing our weighbridge control panels at the start of 2018 to make turnaround time more efficient. These new control panels will offer the following benefits:
- Speeding up the weighing process;
- Automatic registration number recognition (cameras);
Investigation into development of fuels from CO2
At the end of November Twence signed a letter of intent with technology developer Coval Energy from Breda to cooperate on investigation into the development of fuels from CO2. From 2018 we want to jointly develop and build a pilot plant to produce the ‘green fuel’ formic acid. This can use CO2 captured in the Energy from Waste plant of Twence.
Going greener through large-scale CO2 capture
Twence has plans to capture CO2 on a large scale from its Energy from Waste plant and make it available for useful application. This means this CO2 will no longer be emitted directly, and that is good for the environment. In September the Memorandum on Scope and Detailing, the former ‘notification of intent’ for the environmental impact assessment, was submitted to the Province. In the coming months, the Province will evaluate which questions about environmental effects need to be investigated and answered so that Twence can be awarded an integrated environmental permit for this project (the Guidelines).
