200,000 tonne waste plant proposed in Cheshire

Developer Viridor has put in a planning application to build a waste facility on brownfield land in Cheshire.

The plans are for a site in Lobstock Gralam, were developed in response to a request from Cheshire West and Cheshire and Cheshire East councils, for a waste treatment facility, with a 25 year design life.

A mechanical and biological treatment facility will be built at the site, which will have the capacity to handle between 200,000t and 230,000t of residual waste without using incineration.

Viridor Development manager Symon Gatsby, said the plans were “a robust and sustainable solution to help Cheshire maximise recycling” and which would reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.

He added: “We have deliberately excluded the combustion of waste from our plans in Lobstock Gralam, and believe that by utilising the consented Runcorn power plant and rail service we can provide an excellent solution to meet Cheshire’s waste needs.”
