£100m Dundee waste incinerator wins approval
March 21 2017
Sporting a 90m tall chimney the facility will be capable of burning through 110,000 tonnes of waste annually, transforming this waste into around 8MW of electricity and steam which is then sold on to the National Grid and nearby Michelin plant, or used to power local heating networks.
In a statement MVV said: “MVV believes the Baldovie site offers significant advantages as a waste treatment site. First of all, it has an existing Energy from Waste (EfW) facility, therefore an established use; secondly, an EfW facility can provide cost effective, environmentally friendly and sustainable heat and electricity for the adjoining Michelin factory, one of Dundee’s biggest employers.”
With a projected lifespan of 25 years the plant will employ the latest technology to ensure quiet and clean operation while diverting household, commercial and industrial waste from landfill.
