PDM Group was the first company in the world to develop a dedicated, commercial combustion process to use animal by-products as a renewable fuel source.
The technology to do this involved many year's research by PDM Group. A pilot plant was commissioned at PDM Group's Nuneaton site in 1997.
Based on the information and expertise gathered from the pilot plant, in 2000 PDM Group opened the world's first commercial meat and bonemeal (MBM) combustion plant at Widnes, Cheshire.
Today, PDM Group's bubbling fluidised bed (BFB) combined heat and power (CHP) combustion technology provides the benchmark for the disposal of meat industry residues.
