Muntons invest in new energy centre

Working in conjunction with AMP Clean Energy, Muntons, the Stowmarket based malt and malted ingredient manufacturer, has signed an agreement to install a new Energy Centre at their site in Stowmarket.

The new energy centre will be located in the North-West corner of their site and will include a Biomass boiler, a gas-powered Combined Heat and Power generator and two, back-up, gas-powered boilers. This new facility will provide virtually all of their site’s future steam, heat and electricity requirements, whilst also significantly reducing their carbon footprint.

Mark Tyldesley, Muntons Group Managing Director commented: “We have recently installed a Biomass heat and energy plant at our maltings in Bridlington in Yorkshire, and have already seen significant benefits, including a dramatic reduction in our carbon footprint.  So much so, that with our new plant at Stowmarket this will bring us in line with our science-based target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 45%, based on 2010 levels by 2025.”

He continued: “We are delighted to be able to celebrate another major milestone in the history of the site at Stowmarket and look forward to a bright future of sustainable energy supply of which we can all be proud.”

Work on the new facility will begin shortly and it is anticipated that the new Biomass plant will begin generating heat and electricity for Muntons from early spring next year.
