We have an unsurpassed understanding of the biomass fuel market and unrivalled experience of developing workable and resilient fuel strategies to ensure the reliable delivery of high-quality fuels to biomass and AD plants around the country.
Eco2 offers complete end-to-end management of the fuel supply chain. Our service includes developing bespoke procurement strategies based on the forecast fuel demands and specifications of our clients, negotiating supply contracts, managing logistics and inventory and managing the supplier payment processes.
Additionally, Eco2 manages several strategic storage sites for straw biomass, to help manage fluctuations in the straw market and take advantage of periods of low prices. This allows Eco2 to manage disruptions to the supply chain to protect our clients’ fuel supply from external market shocks.
Eco2 has developed its own software package to enable these processes to be run as efficiently as possible and to fit each client’s particular process and reporting requirements. Through regular reporting, we give our clients peace of mind that the fuel they need will arrive in the right quantities, at the right time and to the required specification.
Chief Operations OfficerView profile
Andrew joined Eco2 Ltd in 2003. He initially managed the implementation of the company’s landfill gas portfolio, comprising four sites with a combined potential capacity of nearly 11 MWe, but later returned to the biomass fold. He led the procurement process for the Western Wood Energy Project, and followed this by securing planning permission for Eco2’s straw project in Sleaford. Following Sleaford, Andrew went on to manage the procurement of turnkey and operating contracts for four other power stations: Brigg, Snetterton, Margam and Port Clarence. He also played a key part in securing the finance for these projects.
More recently, he has focused on delivering asset management services for those plants that are operating across the portfolio. Andrew directs a team of project engineers, fuel managers, transport managers and administrators that ensure reliable and cost-effective supply.
Andrew completed a PhD from Birmingham’s Aston University in which he studied the economics of generating electricity from biomass using various thermal technologies. He followed this by developing a range of biomass and ‘energy from waste’ projects at Energy Power Resources. Andrew moved to Eco2 in 2003 to manage the landfill gas portfolio and now oversees the development of Eco2’s UK Biomass portfolio.Meet the team
Templeborough Biomass Power Plant is a 41 MW waste wood-fired plant near Rotherham. It was the first biomass plant on which Eco2 was appointed as MSA provider without having previously been involved in the project development.
The power station entered commercial operations in 2018. In 2019 it was purchased by Greencoat Capital, with Eco2 acting as technical and commercial advisors. Greencoat Capital have awarded Eco2 the MSA to manage the site operations and the fuel supply.
Eco2's responsibilities at Templeborough include the management of complex fuel procurement strategies, which have contributed considerably to the efficient operation of the asset, and to ensuring a stable financial return to the owners.
