Rugby Cement given permission to burn Climafuel

Bosses at Rugby Cement works have been given permission to trial a new fuel-burning system.

The Environment Agency has agreed to trials of Climafuel at Cemex’s Lawford Road plant.

The scheme, which burns domestic fuel and waste, is seen as a clean and environmentally-friendly way to produce fuel.

Ian Southcott, UK Community Affairs Manager with Cemex, said they are likely to test the system later this year.

The trial can last no longer than six months.

Results will be monitored by the Environment Agency before any long-term decisions on the system’s use at the plant are made.
