Plans for a bio-energy storage and distribution facility in Mullingar have been submitted to Westmeath County Council.
Michael and Anne Marie O'Keeffe have applied for planning permission to build an eco-environmental depot at Shandonagh.
The facility will comprise two storage buildings to house agricultural waste grasses.
It will also be used to store and distribute by-products such as wood pellets and biodiesel to the surrounding area.
The pre-validation application states that no distillation or refining will take place in the facility.
It also states that the facility will be used solely for storage and distribution of products manufactured off site.
The application with the Council states that a number of ancillary works are also proposed including fuel storage tanks, one underground storage tank, Portakabin, Portaloo, canopy, two fuel pumps, and associated site works.
Permission is also being sought to use the existing entrance on to the public road. The local authority is due to decide on the application in early November and work could start on its construction early in the New Year.
