  • Tata Steel introduces energy-efficient cooling measures

    Flue accessories at Tata Steel's Port Talbot site will benefit from a new energy-efficient cooling system as part of a £53 million investment by the company.

    This new installation will help to reduce the works' external power requirements by roughly 15 per cent, while assisting in making the site more self-sufficient.

    A large part of the work will be completed in the final six months of 2012, which will coincide with the £185 million rebuilding of Port Talbot's number four blast furnace.

    Karl-Ulrich Kohler, managing director and chief executive officer of Tata Steel in Europe, said: "This investment is a further demonstration of Tata Steel's commitment to make our steel operations in Wales a benchmark for the European industry."

    The decision to build the new cooling system came after the Tata Steel Group completed an examination of best practice at its Port Talbot site.

  • Britain 'failing to attract' low-carbon infrastructure investment

    The UK is failing to draw the level of investment necessary to build low-carbon infrastructure that could lower the emission of flue accessories, it has been claimed.

    Britain's power sector requires £150 billion of private sector investment across the upcoming 20 years, though many senior businessmen believe that the country cannot attract the money at the necessary speed, according to the CBI.

    Katja Hall, chief policy director for the CBI, said: "We know the UK needs a balanced energy mix to cut emissions and grow the low-carbon economy, but the big question now is how we pay for it.

    "Businesses want to get on with building new low-carbon infrastructure, but there is still too much policy uncertainty."

    The government must establish a clear direction of travel and remain with it, the representative added.

    Also, the CBI is urging the coalition to make the Green Deal more appealing to investors by offering a plausible financial model.

  • Southamptom biomass plant plans set to be amended

    Helius Energy, the company behind a proposed £300 million biomass power station in Southampton, has said that it will revise its plans for the flue accessories and gain more public feedback, it has been reported.

    The company is looking to construct a 100-megawatt wood-fired plant in the Western Docks region of the city, though campaigners opposed to the plans believe that the site would cause a rise in transport congestion, according to the BBC.

    Helius told the news provider: "An initial review of public comments shows the main issues raised to be the location and scale of the plant, the sustainability of the project and the effect of the scheme on local air quality, noise levels and traffic movements."

    The company's revised plans follow an article in the Southern Reporter, which revealed that construction work on an waste recycling plant in Langleee is scheduled to begin this September.
