He has also given deemed planning permission for the development. The heat and electricity will be used at the INEOS Runcorn site, a major complex for manufacturing chemicals and one of the largest energy users in the UKU. Malcolm Wicks said, ‘It is important that we move forward in tackling the UK’s waste problem. The proposed plant will make use of local waste for the production of energy, rather than contributing to the UK’s landfill.’
