Spain-based Acconia is to design and construct a waste-to-energy plant in Aberdeen (called the Ness Energy Project), with a capacity to treat 150,000 tonnes of waste per year.
The company will also be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the plant for a 20-year period; for this, it will rely on the expertise of Indaver, a company that has specialised in waste management for over 25 years.
Indaver CEO Paul De Bruycker said: “The Ness project is an excellent example of the circular economy, providing Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray with a sustainable and energy-efficient way to treat non-recyclable waste.
“We will recover as many materials and as much energy as possible from the waste streams that we treat, thus creating value from the waste.”
The Ness Energy Project (www.nessenergy.co.uk
) will be located at a former gas storage site on the East Tullos Industrial Estate in Aberdeen, where it will treat non recyclable waste and generate electricity for the National Grid (plus heating for households in the Torry district).
New legislation will ban waste going into landfill sites in Scotland from 2021.
