|Peel Environmental get go-head on power plant|
Peel Environmental has been given the go-ahead to construct a power station fuelled by rubbish on a 100ha site near Chester.
Peel Environmental, says it will treat waste as “a valuable resource rather than a costly problem, helping to deal with global warming”.
The site will include a 95-megawatt electricity generator, Environmental Technologies Complex and Integrated Waste Management Facilities, all linked by a rail network.
The power plant will burn household waste while the IWMF composts and recycles other waste products.
The energy generated will work to power the site with anymore going to the national grid and it is hoped that the plant will cut the amount of rubbish dumped in landfill sites by 600,000 tonnes a year.
