The plant, which is part of a £250m North Lincolnshire Council contract, will involve building a mechanical biological treatment plant on a 10 acre site at the Normanby Enterprise Park in Flixborough.
At the height of the project, Clugston anticipates the workforce will reach 40 people.
The landmark project, which will reduce the amount of waste North Lincolnshire sends to landfill by as much as 87%, avoiding 11,800 tonnes of carbon dioxide being produced, will see Clugston Construction working along side its partner Waste Recycling Group.
Once built the plant will be operational 7 days a week, handling 69,000 tonnes of rubbish per year and will process residual waste, turning it into Climafuel, an alternative fuel originally developed by CEMEX for use at its kilns at South Ferriby, Lincolnshire.
Climafuel has been used successfully at the South Ferriby site as an alternative to traditional fossil fuels for almost five years.
Steve Radcliffe, managing director Clugston Construction said: “We are delighted to be part of the successful team as design and build contractor for the facility in North Lincolnshire. We have worked closely with our partners WRG and North Lincolnshire County Council for some time, to deliver what will be a sustainable waste management solution.”
Clugston continues to build on its already strong track record in the waste and energy sectors having also recently been awarded a £40m contract to build an energy from waste facility for neighbouring Lincolnshire County Council.
CEMEX’s technical director Neville Roberts said: “We have been steadily increasing the use of Climafuel at our south Ferriby plant and to be able to source more of it locally is a win-win situation. Securing this contract to deal with North Lincolnshire’s waste represents a local solution to a local problem.”
