Irish energy from waste plant approved

Planning permission has been granted for an energy from waste plant in Northern Ireland which turns rubbish into gas rather than burning it directly.

The Lisburn plant (pictured, artist’s impression) will take 80,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste and convert it into a gas with a two-stage heating process.

The gas is then burnt to generate heat, which is used to produce steam and electricity.
