Operator Viridor presented the plans for the Glasgow Recycling and Renewable Energy Centre in Polmadie.
Recycling specialist Viridor will work with the council to overhaul the way the city manages its domestic green bin residual waste over the next twenty-five years.
The plant will operate a three-step process comprising a Smart Materials Recycling Facility to enhance recycling, Anaerobic Digestion to capture food and organic material and an Advanced Conversion Facility to recover renewable energy from post-recycling material that remains.
Construction is due for completion in early 2016.
Steven Don, Scottish Regional Manager for Viridor said: “The impressive facility will transform the way in which the city’s annual 200,000 tonnes of domestic green bin residual waste is managed.
“Importantly, the project is a vital boost for the construction sector and will provide a range of community benefits including green jobs with growth opportunities, tenders for small business and social enterprises and an ambitious education programme across city schools.”
