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

1. reduce
2. reuse
3. recycling
4. recovery (of energy for example)
5. disposal

Planning permission was granted by Dundee City Council on 24th March 2017. Currently, we are in the process of making substantial variations to our current environmental permit to include the new facility from the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA). Construction is ongoing and the finished EFW CHP facility will be commissioned in 2020.
