Cemex has unveiled plans to build a £35 million plant in Warwickshire that willtake residual household and commercial waste and make sustainable green fuel.
The new plant could be built at the company’s former works site in Southam or adjacent to the current cement plant in Rugby.
If approval is given the Climafuel plant would have the capacity to receive around 300,000 tonnes of local waste per year, to satisfy around 60 per cent of Rugby works’ Climafuel needs.
Cemex is submitting two applications to Warwickshire County Council to give residents the opportunity to decide on the best option.
The plant, if planning permission is secured,is due to be completed by 2010.
