Dublin City Council and US energy giant Covanta have agreed a "major renegotiation" of their contract for construction of the controversial €350 million Poolbeg incinerator.
The change in terms includes a substantial amendment to the put-or-pay clause, which was part of the original contract.
Under this clause, Dublin's four councils could have faced multimillion-euro penalties for failing to deliver 320,000 tonnes of waste to the 600,000-tonne incinerator annually.
