ENERGY FROM WASTE – THE BURNING ISSUE

OPPORTUNITY FOR SALTBURN COMMUNITY TO DEBATE PROPOSED INCINERATOR

Combined Power & Heat Highlands Ltd are proposing to build a Residual Waste to Energy Combined Power and Heat Plant within the Cromarty Firth Industrial Park in Invergordon.

The plant would be fuelled by un-recyclable domestic, non-hazardous commercial and industrial waste from the Highlands area and provide a more environmentally sustainable method of disposing of residual waste that will help to meet the new EEC landfill diversion targets.

The plant would produce both heat and electricity, which would be transferred for use by existing and new local businesses and be available for future domestic heating schemes. Once operational the plant will require 20 new employees.

An Environmental Impact Assessment is being undertaken to assess the potential environmental effects of the proposal. The results of this assessment will be published in an Environmental Statement that will accompany an application for planning permission to Highlands Council.

We consider public consultation to be a critical part of the project development process and we are keen to hear local views on our plans.
