Recycling plant to generate jobs.

WALES received much-needed good news on the jobs front yesterday with the announcement that 180 posts are to be created in Newport.

The go-ahead has been given for a pounds 57m green power facility to be built at the city's docks, generating 150 construction jobs and 30 skilled "green-collar" posts over the next four years.

Work on Biogen Power's 'clean energy recovery facility' will start next year and be completed in 2012.

It will process 120,000 tonnes of non-recyclable industrial, commercial and household waste from South East Wales each year, mainly by using thermal conversion technology from the company Energos.

It will generate enough energy to power 18,000 homes.

Christian Reeve, Biogen Power's chief executive, pictured, said: "We are bringing environmentally friendly green technology to Newport to provide a community-sized solution for local non-recyclable waste - in a highly suitable industrial location."
