Emergency services were called to attend an incident at the Wilton chemical complex yesterday.
Police, ambulance crews and the air ambulance were called to the site at 10.30am yesterday.
A man, believed to be aged in his fifties, was taken to hospital, where he was sadly pronounced dead.
The death is not currently being treated as suspicious.
Hundreds of Teesside jobs could be safeguarded after the Government announced a long-awaited consultation on greener fuel.
For the last decade, bioethanol producer Ensus has campaigned for E10 to be brought in at the pumps, which is a cleaner road fuel with double its ethanol product.
The Wilton plant supports around 2,000 jobs but it has warned it could face the same fate as the other major UK bioethanol producer, Vivergo, which went under two years ago, if E10 is not introduced.
Now it could be looking at new products and job creation instead - after the Government announced it will consult on plans to bring in E10 at filling stations from 2021.
The council have said that garden waste collections are due to start again throughout the borough this week.
The Eston areas, Whale Hill, Wilton and Grangetown were first with collections on Tuesday followed by areas of Redcar and Skelton yesterday.
The town centre area of Guisborough and New Marske areas will see the garden waste collection wagon today.
Tomorrow it will be east Cleveland's turn with collections in Loftus, Skelton, Easington, Carlin How and Skinningrove. The council says that garden waste green bins should be put out for collection alongside your recycling bin.
