A £1 million facility that has the capacity to process around 70,000 tonnes of waste has officially been opened in Manchester.

Located in Trafford Park, the Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) processing facility will take commercial and industrial waste such as cardboard, wood and metals for recycling.

Non-recyclable items will however be compacted and wrapped before being transported to a combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Germany where electricity will be produced and steam generated for a local district heating system.

Neil Curtis, Director of B&M Waste Services said: “By harnessing the energy contained in the material, B&M is able to help our customers to preserve natural resources whilst diverting waste from landfill, resulting in lower carbon emissions.”
