Downham Market biofuel refinery

In Downham Market, East England, a biofuel refinery backs onto a sugar refinery plant. The factors have combined heating and power; 80% of the energy used to manufacture the biofuel is waste product from the sugar. The site produces 50MW annually which is fed back to the national grid. Surplus heat is injected into greenhouses, which receive the CO2 emissions, and also helps crop growth.
