Malpass Farm latest

Recycling specialists SITA UK are building a plant that will transform waste into precisely-specified Climafuel for our cement kiln.



Fuel plant latest

Work is now well underway at Malpass Farm, Rugby on the construction of the £18 million production facility that will provide our neighbouring cement plant with a sustainable source of waste-derived fuel.


The project is being run by leading UK waste and recycling specialists SITA UK who will operate the plant and will handle around 220,000 tonnes of waste every year. Recyclables and anything with a high moisture content will be taken out and what's left will be turned into precisely-specified Climafuel, an alternative to coal.

The photograph above shows the progress achieved by the end of May as the site steelwork started to be erected. It is expected that the main building work will be completed by October, when the equipment needed to process the waste will start to arrive.

Due to be fully operational by early 2015, the facility will employ some 43 staff.

While it is not expected that the work will impact on neighbours, SITA has undertaken to keep the immediate community informed of progress and has circulated a newsletter to nearby homes.

Working hours during the construction phase will be 7.30am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 7.30am to 1pm on Saturdays. Access is from the existing gate opposite Metso until the new entrance off the roundabout is constructed - this should be complete by the end of May.
