WRG on schedule to build EfW plant

Waste management firm Waste Recycling Group (WRG) has said that it is on track to build an energy-from-waste (EfW) plant by 2012 at Salt End, Hull, despite having to submit a second application for a permit to operate the EfW.

A WRG spokesman said: WRG is finalising the preparation of a new Pollution Prevention Control (PPC) permit application which is due to be submitted to the Environment Agency shortly. The company continues to be in discussions with Hull and East Riding councils about how the facility is brought forward and when it will be operational.

WRG is confident that the new application will be successful and the company remains fully committed to the Salt End EfW project, which is important to enable Hull City Council and East Riding of Yorkshire Council to provide a sustainable way of dealing with their rubbish in the future as well as to meet their statutory landfill diversion targets.
