Robert Lewis Managing Director of PMAC Environmental has worked in the Waste Management industry since 1998, culminating in the creation of PMAC Environmental in 2012.

Founded in 2012 by Robert Lewis, PMAC Environmental is now the largest privately-owned supplier of waste derived fuels to Finland – A country which currently uses all of its own waste for energy production in CHP facilities.

PMAC Environmental is a company that is well respected internationally for its professionalism and is acknowledged to be on the frontline of waste management practice and innovation. As one of the UK’s most innovative total waste management companies, PMAC Environmental quickly recognised the significance of Energy from Waste technologies.

Energy from Waste facilities divert huge volumes of waste from landfill and provide a sustainable option for energy recovery. They can generate substantial amounts of energy, helping to reduce the dependence on unsustainable fossil fuels. In doing so, Energy form Waste facilities make a vital contribution to the sustainable energy generation capacity of the UK.

The PMAC Energy team includes industry veterans uniquely familiar with all aspects of Waste to Energy (WTE) markets. We have developed a distinctive approach that has helped us to maintain a leading position within the industry. This approach is underpinned by our commitment to quality of service, innovation and technical progress, together with a genuine and demonstrable concern for the environment.

How will it work?

A Waste to Energy (WTE) plant converts municipal and industrial solid waste into electricity and/or heat – an ecologically sound, cost-effective means of energy recovery. The energy plant works by burning waste at high temperatures and using the heat to make steam. The steam then drives a turbine that creates electricity.

Our technology produces very efficient combustion, which results in extremely good environmental performance. Our Waste to Energy concept is based on the principle of maximising the combustion of recovered the waste.

Any ferrous and non-ferrous metals are extracted from the inert bottom ash which results from the combustion process.

The Energy from Waste plant emissions are regulated through the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control regime and are currently monitored by the Environment Agency. Emissions from the stack comply with the most stringent UK and European pollution control standards.
