UK gives go-ahead for 100 MW waste-to-energy CHP plant

17 September 2008 - The UK government has approved a new power station in Cheshire, England fuelled by waste.

The proposed plant has capacity to potentially take waste from Manchester, Merseyside, Halton, Cheshire and Warrington that would otherwise have gone to landfill.

The decision by Energy Minister Malcolm Wicks allows INEOS Chlor Ltd to construct an energy from waste combined heat and power (CHP) station with a capacity of 100 MW, at Runcorn, Cheshire. He has also given deemed planning permission for the development.

As well as producing energy from waste, this proposal demonstrates the Government's continuing commitment to promote CHP. The usable heat and electricity produced from the power station will be utilised at the INEOS Runcorn Site, a major chemicals manufacturing complex and one of the largest energy users in the UK.
