Plans for a biomass generating plant at a wood panel factory in Wrexham are to go on public display.

Kronospan says the 32 MW plant would generate electricity for use within its Chirk factory.

Factory director Mike McKenna believes the plant will be operational in 2014 and said: “It’s a clean operation that will meet the latest European standards.”
