Ellesmere Port science park to trial green energy from waste research
A new green project looking at how firms could use their own waste to cut their power bills and heat their premises has been launched at Ellesmere Port’s university campus.
California based energy generator Arensis and the University of Chester have teamed up to trial the use of a range of landfill wastes to generate combined heat and power at Thornton Science Park at Ince.
The aim is to discover which refuse, including commercial waste, can be redirected from landfill to create electricity and heat to be used directly by the business which has thrown it out.
