Broad Energy (Wales) Limited is preparing a planning application for an Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) on land at Buttington Quarry, located approximately 3 miles (5km) north east of Welshpool.
The Buttington Quarry ERF will use thermal treatment technology to generate renewable and low carbon energy in the form of electricity and heat. Electricity can be exported to the national grid to help provide greater security over supplies, whilst heat can be supplied to local businesses or new developments (including homes).
This development will use non-recyclable (residual) waste as a fuel, helping to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill and so reduce carbon emissions.
A public consultation event was held on 7 December 2016 at the Conference Suite, Welshpool Livestock Sales, Buttington Cross. The event was attended by 110 people and we have taken all of the feedback on board.
Broad Energy (Wales) Limited is now planning to launch pre-application consultation on the final plans for the ERF. These will be announced online in the near future and if you would like to be a part of this process please get in touch via:
Telephone: 0800 130 3353 (freephone) weekdays between 9:00am and 5:30pm
