A new efficient energy from waste solution in Dundee
Making more use of the energy in Dundee and Angus’s residual waste
In November 2017, MVV entered into a contract with Dundee City and Angus Councils to manage their residual waste (that is waste left over after recyclable materials have been removed). It is a long-term contract under which MVV will take over and operate the existing energy from waste facility in Baldovie while building a new, modern facility next door.
The new facility will use around 110,000 tonnes of residual waste per year to generate electricity. It will also aim to fulfil the requirements of the Scottish Government’s hierarchical Zero Waste priorities on
4. recovery (of energy for example)
Planning permission was granted by Dundee City Council on 24th March 2017. In November 2020, SEPA approved MEB’s application to vary the environmental permit to allow parallel operation of the current facility and the new EfW CHP facility. Collectively, these facilities have created an additional 30 jobs on sites and have a capacity of processing approximately 200,000 tonnes of residual waste per annum.
