Green Energy Park

It looks like the UK is set to get its first ever 'green energy park' in the near future. Developers have struck a deal to create a huge plant that will produce energy and recycle large amounts of waste. Different types of trash will be separated and turned into things like glass, building blocks and even some metals.


A Malaysian manufacturing group called KNM will operating the park, and developers plan to open a whole network of energy parks around the UK. The idea is to phase out the concept of landfills and introduce a green-friendly way to manage waste.


It could also produce energy for more than 50,000 homes–all while releasing little to no emissions. Plus, it's expected to be a boost to the local economy because the plant will create a lot of new jobs.
