AN ENERGY company is holding a public meeting to showcase plans of its proposed plant which will use poultry litter to produce electricity and heat.

Sustainable Energy Enterprises Limited (SEEL) wants to build the biomass power plant on land to the east of the B4399, adjacent to the Rotherwas Industrial Estate in Hereford.

It would feed the electricity distribution grid and provide heat to new businesses on the Enterprise Zone, some existing Rotherwas businesses, and the planned new housing to the south west of Rotherwas.

The fuel supply will principally comprise of poultry litter, demolition grade used wood and sewage sludge.

SEEL believe it will secure some existing jobs in the county and generate new employment- some 30 to 50 posts directly in the plant.

The drop-in meeting is tonight (Thursday) at the TRP Board Room in Netherwood Road, Rotherwas where the plans for the proposal can be inspected between 4.30pm and 7.30pm.
