Councillors have unanimously approved plans for a £100 million energy-from-waste incinerator in Dundee.

The application by MVV Environment Services will see the company take over running of the current incinerator from Dundee City Council later this year, which it will operate until the new incinerator is built.

The incinerator, whose chimney will be 90 metres tall, will burn around 110,000 tonnes of waste from Dundee and Angus each year and provide steam to the nearby Michelin factory as well as electricity to the National Grid.

MVV Environment Services managing director, Paul Carey, said he was pleased the application had been approved.

He said: “Our target is to find a long-term solution to the management of residual waste.”

The application was recommended for approval by city planners.
