Two plants given go-ahead

Two waste facilities in Scotland have been granted planning permission.

Glasgow City Council gave planning consent to Peel Environmental for the £145m South Clyde Energy Centre (SCEC, above), to be built on Bogmoor Road, while West Dunbartonshire Council approved the £35m North Clyde Recycling Centre (NCRC) at Rothesay Dock, Clydebank.

SCEC will be an energy from waste plant, and will generate about 20MW to export to the grid, enough to power 38,000 homes.

The NCRC site will include a recyclables sorting facility, a recovery facility and an anaerobic digestion plant.

Both plants were designed by Manchester-based architechts Fletcher Rae.
