Andrew Rollinson

My expertise is in reactor design and process engineering for waste to energy thermal conversion – particularly gasification, or what are now (incorrectly) termed ‘novel’ Advanced Thermal Treatment technologies. Most of my work is on these systems, specifically assessing the technical details and rigour of permit applications, along with doing my own independent research. I have however worked on other renewable energy projects, such as the water-wheel at the old Allinson’s Mill in Castleford – believed to be at one time the largest water-powered stone grinding mill in the world.

In general, I am interested in any project that can provide local or community independence, encourage sustainability, protect nature, and help God’s earth. Some examples of my work are accessible via the Previous Projects and Publications links above, or by contacting me directly.


Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), University of Leeds,

I run Blushful Earth Handmade.

I started making wedding invitations because I wanted to reduce the impact that the wedding industry is having on the environment.  To do this all my designs are made from recycled or tree free papers, and card. By sourcing materials locally I can also keep costs down meaning I charge lower prices. My products are decorated using biodegradable and natural twines; this gives our designs a natural and unique look. I also incorporate wild flower seed paper, recycled denim, grass, banana and hay papers into my designs sourced from a local designer. I also offer a bespoke design service, so designs can be very personal and original in design. The enjoyment I get from making invitations for someone who wants to use recycled materials is great.

Blushful Earth Handmade appears on sites such as The Natural Wedding Company, Wedding Find It Buy It, and on Facebook and Pinterest.
