Bord Na Mona will officially launch a new landfill-gas power plant in Co. Kildare this morning.

The new ‘waste to energy’ project, located at the Drehid landfill site in Carbury, will generate enough electricity to power 8,500 homes.

The Minister for Energy and Natural Resources Pat Rabbitte will attend this morning’s launch.

He has described the project as “a significant step in the delivery of sustainable power sources in Ireland”.
