Robert Lewis Managing Director of PMAC Environmental has worked in the Waste Management industry since 1996, culminating in the creation of PMAC Energy Ltd in 2016.
Founded in 2016 by Robert & Alison Lewis, PMAC Energy 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.
PMAC Energy was the original promoter of the Redcar Energy Center initiating discussions with Redcar Bulk Terminal back in 2016 to develop this site into a Waste to Energy facility as well as a waste processing facility incorporating extracting recyclable materials and manufacturing waste derived fuels for the domestic market and for export, as well as processing the ash from the EfW and manufacturing aggregates and recycled metal.
PMAC Energy currently hold contracts to supply other EfW facilities in Europe, both sourcing waste fuels from the UK and mainland Europe.
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.
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.
