DCO Process

Indaver is developing proposals to achieve a greater power output without any increase to the throughput of waste, through optimising the engineering design and operation of the IWMF. Any increase in capacity of a plant over 50MW would require Secretary of State’s consent under the Planning Act 2008 regime for ‘nationally significant infrastructure’. Indaver is at the early stages of exploring that route to consenting the capacity increase, via a ‘development consent order’ or ‘DCO’. Further information about this process and consultation with the public and all stakeholders will be provided on this page in due course.
