Green light for Warwickshire AD plant

Sita UK has won planning permission for an AD facility in Warwickshire.

The proposed plant, at the firm’s Packington site near Meriden, will treat 50,000 tonnes of municipal, industrial and commercial organic wastes such as food and green garden waste.

The plans, approved by Warwickshire County Council, also include a proposal for local polytunnels growing crops and flowers to use the compost, liquid fertiliser and heat produced by the facility.

An area of the polytunnels may be dedicated for use by local schools and community organisations for horticultural use.

SITA UK expects to start work on the facility in 2014 subject to the application not being called in by the Secretary of State.

SITA UK planning manager Michelle Spruth said: “Warwickshire needs facilities like these to deal with the county’s waste in an environmentally friendly and cost effective way. We look forward to starting work.”
