Shore Energy has received planning permission to develop a materials recovery and renewable energy facility at a site adjacent to the A8 at Carnbroe. The proposal is for a plant which will
- handle 160,000 tonnes of waste per annum and significantly improve the environmental performance of the region.
- achieve high levels of diversion of biomass from landfill and extract recyclable materials such as ferrous and non-ferrous metals, plastics and inerts such as glass, stones and ceramics.
- use the residual biomass to create renewable energy thereby saving fossil fuels
Shore Energy Ltd will develop a materials recovery and renewable energy generation facility on land adjacent to the A8 at Carnbroe, Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire providing a £50m investment to the local area as well as creating 50 permanent jobs.
The region around the site produces substantial quantities of waste and it is estimated that over 1.7 million tonnes of municipal waste is produced within 30 miles of the proposed location. Over and above this the commerce and industry in the central belt produces significant quantities of waste much of which currently goes to landfill.
We hope to make a positive difference in recycling more of this waste, recovering energy from it and diverting it from landfill to prevent the generation of greenhouse gases. Our proposed plant will receive 160,000te of municipal, commercial and industrial waste which will be processed to remove recyclables and to prepare a fuel which will be turned into renewable energy using pyrolysis to create gas which is then used to generate energy.
