East Yorkshire biofuel plant back on track


The Vivergo biofuel plant in Saltend, near Hull, became the centre of a workers dispute that lasted for weeks. Controversial strikes earlier in the year led to huge delays in its construction.

But now the company building the UK's largest biofuel plant said it is back on track and is expected to open in the New Year.

It will take in more than 1m tonnes of wheat annually which will be used to produce 420m litres of bioethanol and 500,000 tonnes of animal feed.
