The proposed building of a 45 MW energy from waste plant north of the Tees river has received 100% support from a recent public consultation.
The project has been resurrected by Cardiff-based Eco2 after another company failed to find sufficient funding after announcing it in 2009.
The £160 million facility would process approximately 325,000 tonnes of waste wood into energy each year, Gazette Live reported.
The application for the building of the plant on industrial land close to the Transporter Bridge will now be considered by Stockton Council.
Up to 350 people will be employed on site during construction and around 50 full time jobs created to operate and manage the facility.
The Port Clarence Energy company has been created to run the project through a partnership between Eco2 and Temporis Capital.
