Energy from Waste Tata Chemicals to Build Energy from Waste Plant in Europe
Tata Chemicals and E.on Energy have been permitted to build an energy from waste (EfW) plant at Lostock in Northwich. The plant will be built and operated by EEW which already operates 19 EfW plants in Europe.
Mumbai/India – The plant will use pre-treated waste from which economically recyclable materials have been removed and which would otherwise be destined for landfill. Construction of the new plant is likely to begin next year and be operational towards the end of 2016.
Martin Ashcroft, Tata Chemicals Europe Managing Director, says: "The plant is designed to provide steam to Tata Chemicals Europe's Lostock factory. As an energy intensive business, we are faced with ever-rising gas prices which are increasingly difficult to absorb. The new plant will give us fuel price stability which will allow us to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and to plan our long-term future."
