BH EnergyGap will shortly submit a planning application to develop a Resource Recovery and Renewable Energy Production Facility (the 3Rs) at Fryers Road, Birchills Leamore, Walsall.

As the cost of waste disposal continues to rise, there is ever more pressure on businesses to ensure their waste is recovered and where possible recycled, rather than being sent directly to landfill. However, there is a real shortage of facilities to support the local residential and business communities in delivering best practise waste management.

The 3Rs facility will safely process this waste.  Materials will be sorted and segregated to recover their value. Materials such as metals, plastics and rubble for onward recycling will be treated using the latest sorting technology such as magnets, eddy currents, near infrared cameras and air jets.  The residual materials will be used to produce energy using advanced thermal treatment.  The resulting gas will be used to produce electricity or potentially heat for export from the site.  All activities will provide a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels and primary materials.

BH EnergyGap will be holding a second public exhibition for local residents and businesses to find out  more about the plans proposed for the Fryers Road site.  The exhibition will be at the Mirus Academy school (previously known as Frank Harrison Engineering College), Willenhall Lane entrance,  Birchills Leamore, Walsall from 3pm to 7pm on Friday 12th April.

Friday 12th April from 3pm – 7pm

Staff will be on hand at all times to welcome residents and answer any questions.
