The Runcorn Energy Recovery Facility is strategically located near to Liverpool, Cheshire and Greater Manchester to provide a waste disposal solution for the region’s businesses and local authorities.

It is one of the largest energy recovery facilities currently operating in Europe, converting pre-treated refuse derived fuel produced from non-recyclable wastes into heat and energy. The facility is accessible by both road and rail making it an economic and sustainable solution for its customers.

Runcorn Energy Recovery Facility is a Combined Heat & Power (CHP) plant. It treats between 850,000 and 890,000 tonnes of refuse derived fuel each year; waste that would otherwise be sent to landfill.  The fuel is produced from household and commercial waste, after recyclable materials have been removed.

The facility generates up to 70MW of electricity, enough to power the site itself and around 90,000 homes.  In addition, it generates 51 MW of heat for exclusive use by the nearby INOVYN chemical manufacturing site.
