Waste management company Indaver has revived plans for an energy-from-waste plant in Ringaskiddy, Cork.
The company told ENDS it was "engaging with and informing" stakeholders about the plans and would not comment further until this process was completed.
Indaver’s website further reveals the company plans a facility "similar" to its energy recovery plant in County Meath. That facility treats more than 200,000 tonnes of waste per year and generates 18MW of electricity.
It is unclear whether the new proposals would be for a facility processing municipal solid waste or hazardous waste as was originally planned.
Indaver had first revealed plans in 2001 for a €150m facility.
However, in 2011 Ireland’s national planning authority Bord Pleanála rejected the plan saying it was not compatible with the area’s waste management needs.
