Cost of the plant will run around £20 million. The system will work based on auto-claving, which has a long history of use for sterilization and has recently been developed for waste recycling.
The Inverness Harbour Trust is happy with the new plans so far, as it appears there will be some relief to the port in the offing, since part of the scheme is to move recycled materials away by ship.
The Scottish EPA will be in charge of regulating the plant and they are hoping to realize a reduction in landfill waste, as the conversion to bio-mass fuel is made. The reduction of trucking to landfills in should also reduce traffic on the A96 and A9.
