Renewables factory creates jobs and energy for Hull

A renewables company is creating 25 new jobs in Hull with the construction of a new waste-to-energy plant.

Hull Live reports work on the plant in Melton, to the West of Hull by the Humber Bridge, will begin later this year, creating up to 25 jobs and powering 24,000 homes in Hull.

Renewables company Solar 21’s plans for the plant have now been approved following an application submitted earlier this year.

The new plant will burn waste produced by neighbour Transwaste, on the Melton Waste Park off Gibson Lane, and create renewable energy for East Yorkshire.

As well as the 25 new jobs, it is thought the plant could support 100 existing skilled manufacturing jobs and 150 construction jobs.
