French utility Suez invests £100m in new waste-to-energy plant

French utility Suez is to invest more than £100 million in a new waste-to-energy power station in the north-east of England.

The firm says it aims to capitalise on the growing demand for alternative ways in which to process waste and help resolve a dramatic reduction in the country’s available landfill space.

The 25MW site near Billingham in Stockton-on-Tees will serve the public sector as well as commercial customers.

Once it enters operation in 2022, it will generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of around 30,000 households, while processing 200,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste a year.

David Palmer-Jones, CEO of Suez Recycling and Recovery in the UK, said: “The UK has a shortfall in vital, non-landfill waste-treatment capacity.”
