£480m investment agreed for Lostock SEP development

Tata Chemicals Europe (TCE) has reached an agreement with LSEP Limited, a joint venture formed by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and FCC Environment Group,  which will now fund, own, construct and operate a new energy from waste plant (EFW) on the site of the old coal-fired Tata power station at Lostock Works.

The agreement represents a £480m investment in Northwich and will contribute to the UK Government’s strategy to reduce landfill and the export of waste. The Lostock Sustainable Energy Plant will recover energy from residual waste left over after re-usable and recyclable material has been removed.
