Elgin's "first EfW plant" marks departure from norm for skip and scrap company

In a departure from normal business, skip and scrap company J Gordon Williamson has obtained planning permission to build a 30,000 tonnes a year capacity energy-from-waste (EfW) plant. The plant will be built at its Elgin waste transfer station, in north east Scotland, and will accept industrial, commercial and municipal waste. It will be a combined heat and power system, capable of generating four megawatts of electricity. The company believes it is the first in the area to receive approval. .
