Uskmouth Power Station – waste to energy

SIMEC Uskmouth Power Station in Wales

SIMEC Uskmouth Power Station is a 363-megawatt coal fired power generation plant in South Wales, UK.

Originally designed and built to be run on coal, the plant is being repurposed to run on abundantly available non-recyclable plastic waste.

Once converted it will be the world’s first conversion of a coal fired power station to use waste derived fuel, and we believe it can act as a blueprint for managing excess waste and improving the environmental performance of aging coal fired power stations in the UK and Europe.
