Press Release - 04-01-2006

CHASE has learned that Indaver Ireland will seek to increase their operating capacity by 50,000 tonnes at their proposed plant at Carranstown, Co Meath from 150,000 to 200,000 tonnes. The company wants to be able to accept waste from outside the regions of Meath, Louth, Cavan, and Monaghan even though a very strict condition of their planning permission was that waste must only originate from these counties.

CHASE is not surprised to hear this, a CHASE spokeswoman said today as Indaver had previously sought to import waste from outside the State. What must happen now, she stated is that the Company must be required to make a fresh application under the new Planning Act where due consideration can be given Health and the Environment.

We are already aware that the draft Waste Management Plan for Counties Limerick, Clare and Kerry see Cork as a potential home for their incineration requirements and that it is highly unlikely that the company will refuse such waste given the way they are seeking to operate their facilities.

CHASE will oppose such developments vigorously.
