Covanta Holding Corporation to Commence Construction of the Dublin Waste-to-Energy Facility

Covanta Holding Corporation announced that it has executed an agreement with the Dublin City Council to build, own and operate a new 600,000 metric tonne per year, 58 net megawatt Energy-from-Waste facility in Dublin, Ireland. Facility construction is expected to take approximately three years, with commencement of operations targeted for late 2017. The Dublin Waste-to-Energy Facility will provide the Dublin region with a long-term sustainable and environmentally superior waste management solution, enabling it to divert post-recycled waste from landfills and become locally self-sufficient in managing waste, consistent with regional, national and EU waste policies. When complete, the facility will generate clean renewable energy to supply 80,000 homes, reducing Ireland's reliance on imported fossil fuel, and has also been designed with technology and infrastructure to provide enough heat to meet the equivalent needs of over 50,000 homes if a district heating system is implemented in the future.
