The works in the Protos Energy Recovery Facility, an energy from waste project, the construction of which has been undertaken by MYTILINEOS in a joint venture with Standardkessel Baumgarte GmbH are proceeding normally and on schedule. In particular, MYTILINEOS’ Sustainable Engineering Solutions Business Unit leads the work, confirming its ability to undertake complex EPC (Engineering – Procurement – Construction) projects of high technical requirements internationally.
Protos is a model project in Cheshire, England that aspires to be a modern hub for energy and resource technologies. It is owned by Covanta, the Green Investment Group and Biffa, and aims to set an example for the United Kingdom in achieving its net-zero carbon target. With its gaze to the conclusions of the UN Conference on Climate Change, MYTILINEOS is proudly involved in the development of this important project. With a capacity of 400,000 tons of non-recyclable waste per year, it will be able to accelerate the transition from coal to clean energy and zero-emission vehicles, to protect and restore the natural environment.
Benefiting both the people and the climate, the Protos project makes a significant contribution to the enhancement of climate prospects through science and innovation.
