UK government approves plans for Cheshire EfW plant



UK government approves plans for Cheshire EfW plant
The government has approved plans to build a 95MW waste-fuelled power station in Cheshire.

With a projected ability to process 60,000 tonnes of waste a year into electricity and heat, the clean-energy facility will be built in Ince.

It is intended that the waste used by the power generation plant, which will be diverted from landfill, will be turned into energy for a new Resource Recovery Park, with the excess being sent to the National Grid.

The approval for the energy-from-waste (EfW) scheme was granted following a public inquiry into plans for the Ince facility.

Lord Hunt, energy and climate change minister, said: "We need to increase our use of renewable energy and to find solutions to the UK's waste problem.

"This power plant will convert over half a million tonnes of waste each year into energy."

He also expressed his confidence that the power station will not have a negative effect on the surrounding local villages.
