latest JUNE 11TH:  650 hits

UPDATE: June 9th: Despite an expensive leafleting campaign; we hear that 80 people turned out for a public meeting last night, attended by Cambridge County Council planning staff, only to hear they now need, according to Cllr Turnip, to form a protest group, and attend a few more of his public meetings.

Those attending now realise the meeting was a waste of their time, the Peterborough local councillor has little or no influence over this County council matter.

UPDATE: June 8th Cambridgeshire County Council have according to reports started to close down web comment active links to the consultation process. Essentially keeping strictly to their original timetable. The consultation period is therefore unlikely to be extended. This post has clocked up circa 800 hits so far...some very unhappy citizens out there... 

However we suggest writing a detailed but polite letter, and copied to your M.P. Its clear the backers of this planning application have some influential 'friends' and substantial resources to progress the application.

You'll recall the farming community helped return Conservative MPs to parliament!  

UPDATE: June 7th: Time is fast running out, time running out to comment!! PCC Councillors ARE excluded from decision making process, as its a Cambridgeshire County Planning matter, Any 'public consultation meeting' in Peterborough called by a Peterborough Councillor is totally misleading and a complete waste of your time.

We suggest it is just early election window dressing for the local election IN 2016 and to hide the demise of Stanground East ward. DON'T BE FOOLED THIS IS A DONE DEAL! WE ARE TOAST!

While its still open, use the direct link on here to urgently lodge your protest! It will cease to exist when the Cambs County Planning timetable expires. IE If the links below don't work, it's too late...but write and snailmail a formal letter instead.

This is the only viable way to have your say. You could also telephone the people behind the scheme (direct numbers below), and ask them for details and let them directly know how you feel.

Simply this is a huge DISASTER for this region ...and your investment in property, simply the proliferation of incinerators - backed by conservative councillors - will continue to blight property prices, and cause respiratory problems for all of us residents.  What on earth are they thinking? 

Well this one was kept well under wraps by the Tories during the Peterborough City Council local election. Soon yet another massive waste biogas incinerator complete with flare pipe will be belching out carcinogenic fumes and fly ash from nearby Horsey Toll Farm landing all over Cardea, Stanground and Park Farm; if the current planning application before Cambridgeshire County Council goes through.

Expect the value of your houses new and old , and those not yet built, to take a massive hit, once its known this part of Cambrideshire is the designated area for all forms of invasive incineration. The more the merrier.  
You really could not make this up. Just wait until the Cambridgeshire fracking applications go in...don't expect them to be anywhere near the City of Cambridge!

NONE of our Peterborough councillors will be too worried, one attempting to get on a rapidly moving bandwagon, has employed school children to deliver leaflets, but its more an  invitation to join his facebook page. To be in with a chance click on the comment link below and get your thoughts in. The newly elected Peterborough councillors can simply blame the County and say its not in their power to do anything...although the scrubbed but still carcinogenic fumes will radiate over this part of the City of Peterborough and our Stanground wards and Schools in particular.

Don't expect any action from Stewart Jackson MP, as its not his patch. However a lobby of MP Shailesh Varas office might be useful, He's just been reappointed Under Secretary of State for Justice.

Councillors are only in office for less than a year due to ward changes next year, so its the perfect storm.

Hats off to Envitec Biogas Ventures Ltd offshoot of the massive German firm, for dreaming this one up. The timing of their campaign is perfect. They must have known, no effective official opposition from Peterborough can be mounted UNLESS individual residents take some action and quickly. Quite simply we are all on our own!

You can start with this: and urgently put in your own comments.

And a little background on Envitec:

Since June 2007, EnviTec Biogas has had a presence in the UK through its joint venture with ARM Ltd., a leading supplier of pig housing and equipment for agricultural businesses in the UK. EnviTec and ARM Ltd. hold 60 and 40 percent, respectively, in EnviTec Biogas (UK) Limited. The contract signed with E.H. & B. Dymond & Son is the first result of the cooperation between the two partners.

EnviTec Biogas AG covers the entire value chain for the production of biogas - including the planning and turnkey construction of biogas plants as well as their commissioning. The company provides the biological and technical service and also offers the full plant and operating management. In addition, EnviTec also operates its own biogas plants. In Penkun, in the German state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, EnviTec is currently constructing what it believes to be the world's largest biogas park with an electrical connected load of 20 megawatts. Already today, EnviTec is represented through its own subsidiaries, joint ventures or sales offices in the Netherlands, Italy, France, the UK, China, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Romania, the Ukraine and India. In Belgium, Croatia and Greece, the company is already in the process of planning and constructing biogas plants. In 2006 EnviTec generated revenues of EUR 100.7 million and EBIT of EUR 18.5 million. The EnviTec Group has about 260 employees. Since July 2007 EnviTec is listed on the Prime Standard segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

Waste-to-energy pilot project in Osaka successfully implemented

First EnviTec plant in Japan connected to the grid

The 250 kW EnviWaste plant - heading for Cardea and Stanground?
Lohne, 7th April 2015 – Even today, four years after the terrible disaster, Fukushima is a memorial for a radical energy revolution in Japan and across the globe. Together with RENAGEN Inc., a Japanese biogas company, EnviTec Biogas is supporting Japan’s green energy objectives and has just successfully commissioned its first biogas plant in Osaka Prefecture.

The 250 kW EnviWaste plant is the pilot project for the strategic partnership between EnviTec and RENAGEN. The company is part of REMATEC Group, a leading waste recycling company based in Japan and South-East Asia. “With this plant we, together with EnviTec Biogas, can for the first time demonstrate the enormous efficiency of the waste-to-energy technology used here to the Japanese market”, said Daisuke Mishima, CEO of RENAGEN.

Establish up to ten biogas plants in cooperation per year

For the industrial country of Japan, energy generation from waste material marks an important step towards the attainment of the country’s climate objectives. With a population of over 126 million, Japan is ranked as the tenth most populous country in the world. Before the Tsunami disaster, the island country ranked at third place among the world’s largest producers of nuclear-generated electricity, coming in after the USA and France.
