Biffa yesterday (1 December) announced that it has completed financial close on the Protos Energy-from-Waste (EfW) facility in Cheshire, with its partners Covanta and Macquarie Group.
Located near Ellesmere Port, the Protos facility will have a capacity of 400,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) for non-recyclable household and industrial and commercial waste. Of this, Biffa will be contracted to supply 61 per cent – or 245,000 tpa.
