The modern waste management compound sponsored by FCC, whose construction will involve the investment of 350 million pounds (around 400 million euro), is designed to respond to this deficit, whilst maintaining the current employment at Greengairs.
Central to the plan will be the construction of an energy-from-waste facility (EfW), the Drumgray Energy Recovery Centre (DERC), that will receive pre-treated residual, non-recyclable, non-hazardous waste otherwise destined for landfill. FCC will use EfW technology to thermally treat the waste to generate electricity and heat. The Drumgray ERC will accept up to 300,000 tonnes of residual household and business waste per year, enough to export circa 25.5 megawatts of electricity and the potential to supply heat to local homes and businesses.
