Environmental bosses have endorsed a poultry producer’s plans for renewable power.
Banham Poultry’s plan to create a renewable plant near its operations in Attleborough, Norfolk has been approved by the Environment Agency.
The company has now launched energy division, Banham Power to take the £10m project forward. The plant is the first of its kind in the UK and will safeguard 750 jobs at Banham Poultry by offering a sustainable solution to the costly problem of by-product disposal.
The plant will be able to produce some 5.5MW of energy, enough to supply households across the Attleborough area.
