New Combined Heat and Power Plant

What is being proposed

With a desire to improve environmental performance and enhance international competitiveness by reducing costs, CalaChem is looking to redevelop part of its site to construct a renewable energy plant that will deliver electricity and heat for use of the business and other companies on site and in Earls Gate Park www.earlsgatepark.co.uk. The new combined heat and power (CHP) plant will replace the existing boiler house and will replace conventional fuels with Refuse Derived Fuel, or RDF, which is produced from processing the remaining material from commercial and household wastes after recyclables have been removed, and has been classified by the EU as a renewable fuel.
