Wheelabrator Technologies has launched a public consultation for a proposed energy recovery facility on a former steelworks site at the Deeside Industrial Park.
The project has been named Parc Adfer with Adfer meaning to ‘recover’ or ‘restore’ in Welsh.
The proposed facility will be able to process up to 200,000 tonnes of non-recyclable household waste per year in an investment estimated to between £600-800m over the 25-year lifetime of the project.
Parc Adfer has been commissioned by the North Wales Residual Waste Treatment Project, which is a partnership of five councils: Flintshire County, Isle of Anglesey County, Gwynedd, Conwy County Borough and Denbighshire County.
Gary Aguinaga, vice president, UK operations at Wheelabrator, said: “We want people to ask us questions - because that means we can start to address some of the concerns that have been raised and we can demonstrate how our experience and commitment to excellence will make this a state of the art facility that North Wales can be proud of”.
Information on the scheme is available online at www.parcadfer.com and the consultation will run until 11 July, with six public exhibitions taking place in the first half of June.
