Viridor turns Scottish council waste into renewable energy

September 16, 2016 |

In South Lanarkshire, Scotland, Viridor has signed a ten year contract to process around 80,000 tonnes of residual waste each year. This project starts on 1 April 2017 and its contract value is £127 million ($142.7 million). The aim is to convert residual waste into renewable energy.

South Lanarkshire SME and Wm Hamilton & Sons will invest £1 million ($1.3 million) in vehicles and a transfer and logistics hub at Dovesdale farm in South Lanarkshire.

52,000 tonnes of residual waste from across South Lanarkshire will be delivered directly to the Dovesdale site, with a further 26,000 tonnes being received via the council’s Carluke transfer station.

From there, materials will be transported to Viridor’s £177 million ($198.8 million) Dunbar Energy Recovery Facility, currently under construction and scheduled for completion in December 2017.
