Building work on a controversial waste plant is due to start next year - five years after planning permission was granted.
Woodhouse Recycling and Renewables (WWRen) will be based at Rivenhall Airfield and deal with about 853,500 tonnes of municipal, commercial and industrial waste a year from Essex.
It will include:
* a mechanical biological treatment of non-recyclable waste to produce a solid recovered fuel
* a paper pulping plant
* a combined heat and power plant to burn solid recovered fuel to produce electricity, heat and steam.
* an anaerobic digestion plant treating organic waste
* a materials recycling facility to recover mixed dry recyclables such as paper and plastics.
Gent Fairhead, which owns the airfield, gained planning permission in 2010 and is setting up a site liaison committee for local councils and relevant organisations to discuss matters connected with the site.
