Energy firm Sembcorp has unveiled plans for a renewable cheap energy plant in the north-east of England.
The energy recovery facility will be constructed at the Wilton International site in Teesside, in conjunction with waste management firm Sita UK.
The multi million-pound development will process non-hazardous business and household waste into renewable energy and is expected to create 50 jobs and sustain a further 200 positions in the construction sector.
Sembcorp and Sita UK said the environmentally-friendly development will play an important part in saving around 130,000 tonnes of carbon emissions.
George Dunning, leader of Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council, said: "The renewable energy sector is thriving on Teesside and this latest news is extremely welcome from both an environmental and economic point of view."
He added that diverting hundreds of thousands of tonnes of non-hazardous office and household waste away from landfill every year underscores Teesside's credentials as a genuine leader in waste processing.
