Viridor and Shanks consortium to submit detailed solutions for West Lothian waste treatment facility

Waste management companies Viridor and a consortium of Shanks and John Laing Investments have been invited to submit detailed solutions for West Lothian Council’s waste treatment facility.

The facility will be developed on council owned land on Caputhall Road, Livingston, and will assist in “drastically reducing” the 60,000 tonnes of household waste sent to landfill by the council each year.

The project is currently subject to the European (OJEU) procurement process and to EU, UK and Scottish legislation and regulation including the new Zero Waste Plan.

According to MRW’s sister publication Infrastructure Journal, the authority has stated that the facility will be technology neutral “except for any ‘mass burn’ incineration option”.

It has also been reported that the facility will become operational by 2014.
