Waste cooking oil power station opens in Selby

A power station which produces electricity from waste cooking oil has opened in Selby, North Yorkshire.

The £6m plant at Whitemoor Business Park, Cliffe Common, will provide back-up power at short notice to the National Grid.

It uses bio liquid which is recovered from waste cooking oil collected from local authorities, schools and prisons across the country.

Operator Living Fuels claimed it was "incredibly good for the environment".
