160 new jobs are being created on Merseyside by a firm which specialises in turning food waste into energy.
H2 Energy opens its new premises at Wellington Business Park, north Liverpool this morning.
The firm's first commercial 'bio-refinery' unit, which has been manufactured at the Liverpool site, will also be handed over to the company's first major client.
H2 Energy is one of only a few British companies specialising in small-scale 'anaerobic digestion'.
Mayor Joe Anderson, who helped bring the company to the city, will join H2 Energy bosses and guests for their official opening.
The firm has already taken on more than 30 members of staff as part of its commitment to create 160 jobs over the next three years. It claims the majority of the positions will be local.
All design, research and development, manufacture, field support and commercial activities are located at the Wellington Business Park site.
The city council says employment opportunities will include specialist engineering jobs, apprenticeships and business support roles.
