Plot 10B

March 2020

Waste2Tricity and Peel L&P NRE were granted planning approval by Cheshire West and Chester Council in March 2020 for Development of a hydrogen production facility and electricity generating plant, comprising of a waste reception and handling building, gasification facility, hydrogen production facility with associated/ ancillary infrastructure which includes access roads, weighbridge, fencing /gates, lighting, surface water drainage, and electricity distribution plant.


Update August 2021

Peel NRE have submitted a Section 73 application to Cheshire West and Chester planning authority to gain consent for proposed changes to the facility. 

This application seeks permission for changes to the approved layout and elevations which have arisen from detailed design of the facility.

Additionally, the application seeks to increase the number of HGVs permitted to access the facility each day in order to provide flexibility for the delivery of hydrogen to potential future customers. The number of HGV movements associated with each plot at Protos will be altered to reallocate the movements and increase the proportion of movements permitted to access the hydrogen production facility (located at Plot 10b). This will be subject to a separate application for a non-material amendment to Condition 9 of the Ince RRP permission

Plastic Recycling Facility planned for Protos

Enviroo is looking to build a plastic recycling facility at the Plastic Park planned for Protos. The Plastic Park will cluster together plastic recycling and recovery technologies to create value from plastic waste, helping to avoid it ending up in landfill, exported overseas or in our oceans. The facility follows planning permission being granted for a plastic to hydrogen facility earlier this year. For further information on the Plastic Park click here

The Enviroo facility will take used PET (polyethylene terephthalate) – the main material used for food and drinks packaging such as plastic bottles and certain food packaging – and convert it into the raw material for new food-grade packaging, without any waste.

The facility will see an investment of around £20 million into the local economy and create 50 new, permanent jobs. It will also reduce the need for virgin plastic, preventing the extraction of natural resources.

A consultation on the plans has been launched for local people to have their say. This closed on 29th October 2020.
