New energy from waste plant in Teesside

Technology firm Air Products has this week announced it will construct a new energy from waste plant in Billingham, Teesside.

The new plant will divert up to 350,000t of non-recyclable waste from landfill per year to power the 50MW capacity plant, which Air Products claims is the largest of its kind anywhere in the world.

Construction on the plant is due to begin in the next few weeks with preparatory works already taking place. Air Products has already secured the necessary environmental and planning approvals for the scheme with commercial operation due in 2014.

The plant is expected to create up to 700 construction jobs and over 50 permanent roles once operational.
