altShanks Group plc, a leading international sustainable waste management business, today officially opened the new 75,000 tonne Southern Resource Park mechanical biological treatment (‘MBT’) waste facility in Barrow, Cumbria.

The new facility will complement Shanks’ Northern Resource Park MBT facility near Carlisle, which opened in December 2011, in providing a total waste management solution for Cumbria County Council. One of the main outputs from the MBT process will be solid recovered fuel (‘SRF’) which can be used for energy production in a variety of facilities and industrial processes, such as cement kilns.
