About the proposed incinerator Phase 1
The proposed development involves a mixed hazardous and industrial
non-hazardous waste management facility, with:
• A fluidised bed incinerator (capacity 60,000 tonnes)
• A post combustion chamber (capacity 40,000 tonnes).
The 30 acre site is at the eastern tip of the Ringaskiddy peninsula.
The building complex will run from the road to the top of the hill
to the South, and will require extensive excavation of the hillside.
The main process building will be 35m (115ft) high and will extend
above the top of the hill behind it, making it visible from areas
such as Crosshaven and Currabinny.
The associated stack will be 55m (180ft) high.
A second phase to the development involves a 100,000 tonnes facility
for non-hazardous commercial and household waste. This will be the
subject of a separate planning application.
According to Indaver, phase 1 will employ about 50 people. In contrast,
it has been estimated that a properly structured recycling industry
would create approximately 5000 jobs.
