New deal delivers 80% of waste to energy

* Waste-to-energy.jpgMore than 80% of general household waste will be converted into energy in a new contract between North Lanarkshire council and Viridor Waste Management. The contract will see 64,000 tonnes of waste from homes and Household Waste Recycling Centres treated every year.

This material, which would previously have gone to landfill, will be treated at Viridor's new Energy Recovery Facility in Dunbar, where it is converted into energy.

The £177million facility will generate 30MW of low carbon energy every year into the national grid - enough to continuously power 39,000 homes.

In December 2019, North Lanarkshire and four other Scottish local authorities will begin a 25-year partnership with Viridor to treat and process their residual waste at Dunbar, through the Clyde Valley Residual Waste Contract. The waste from North Lanarkshire over the next few months will help commission and optimise the new facility.
