The purchase was conditional on the development and financing of the project, as well as several other factors including securing offtake and feedstock contracts, and relevant planning and environmental permission for the project.

'The acquisition of the project site means we remain on track to deliver the UK's first sustainable waste-to-energy plant using EQTEC's leading advanced gasification technology and solutions,' the company said.

A deposit of £260,000 was paid, and the balance of £8,340,000 was payable at completion of the land purchase.
