The facility, which forms part of £250M North Lincolnshire Council contract, will be built on a ten acre site at the Normanby Enterprise Park in Flixborough.

The project will see Clugston Construction working alongside its partner Waste Recycling Group (WRG). It should help reduce the amount of waste North Lincolnshire sends to landfill by as much as 87%.

The plant will have the capacity to process 69,000 tonnes of residual waste a year, turning it into Climafuel, an alternative fuel developed by CEMEX for use at its kilns at South Ferriby, Lincolnshire.

Clugston continues to build on its track record in the waste and energy sectors having also recently been awarded a £40M contract to build an energy-from-waste plant for neighbouring Lincolnshire County Council.
