Waste Recycling Group (WRG) has proposed to construct and run an Energy from Waste (EfW) facility. The company is currently discussing the proposed plan with Waste Recycling Group (WRG) and plans to run the EfW facility with combined heat and power facility (CHP) at its Cardiff Road location.
The combination of energy, power and heat from the waste facility will help reduce Dow Corning’s dependability on fossil fuels, generate renewable energy and offer a viable source of energy for WRG’s manufacturing plant that produces silicon-based materials.
The new plant will generate local jobs and will create more job opportunities at the time of the construction stage. WRG is one of four firms that have been selected by Prosiect Gwyrdd (Project Green) to provide an alternative source to reduce its landfill dependability and manage the municipal waste.
Dow Corning’s site manager, Dave Ott, stated that both secure and economical energy supply is important to ensure lasting success of the company’s Barry site. The facility will also help the company’s sustainability practices by producing steam and power whose combination will offer a sustainable and efficient source of energy, thereby boosting the local economy and bringing in significant advantages to the company.
