Sterecycle plans combined heating and power plant

Sterecycle, a waste treatment and renewable power company, has announced plans to develop a combined heating and power (CHP) plant and, potentially, an anaerobic digestion (AD) plant, on the site of its existing waste treatment facility in Rotherham, UK.

The company has received planning permission for the CHP plant from the Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council and has also submitted a separate planning application for an AD plant that could be positioned alongside a smaller CHP.
