SUEZ is proposing to develop an anaerobic digestion facility at our Ellington Road site, in between Ashington and Linton Colliery. The facility will replace an existing composting facility.

Our proposal

There is a national need to reduce food waste and put any food that is wasted to good use. Our proposed facility is designed to do just that, by turning food waste from across the region into reliable renewable energy and compost-like soil improver – a win-win for our communities and the environment.

We held a two-week public consultation from Monday 27 June 2022 to Sunday 10 July 2022, where there was the opportunity to learn about our project and share your views with us before we submit a planning application to Northumberland County Council.
