Hydrodec Re-Refining (UK) Ltd will shortly be bringing forward proposals regarding an application for the construction and operation of new hazardous waste treatment facilities at Power House Road, Eastham, Port Wirral, Merseyside.
The project is classed as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project and as such an application for a Development Consent Order will be made to the Planning Inspectorate.
The application will be for the re-refining of waste oil to generate hydrocarbon based products.
The facility will include:
- Plant for the re-refining of waste base oil and transformer oil
- Tanks for the storage of waste oil, process material, product, waste water and oil based wastes
- Hydrogen generation plant
- Stacks and emergency flares for controlled emissions to air
- Water and effluent management and treatment facilities
- Pipes and infrastructure associated with the site activities
- Piping will be constructed for the delivery and receipt of waste oil and product
the storage tank farm (currently operated by NuStar) located to the south of the application site
- Laboratory and research facilities
- Maintenance and warehouse buildings and offices
- Tanker offloading, loading and parking areas
- Car parking for employees and visitors
- Boundary landscaping Works
- Provision of adequate utilities.
The site will be constructed on a phased basis. The hazardous waste input rate to the oil re-refinery initially will be approximately 75,000 tonnes per annum and will be up to 180,000 tonnes per annum once the site is fully developed.
We hope to have our webpages available soon with more details on the project.
