Binn Ecopark

As an established and growing circular economy focused resource management, renewable energy and eco-innovation centre, Binn Ecopark is a great place to do business.

Since the development of the Binn landfill site, which closed in September 2014, the Binn Farm site has expanded and diversified. This has included the development of two separate Material Reclamation Facilities (MRF) treating commercial, industrial and municipal waste, a 30,000 tonne per annum food waste anaerobic digestion facility, in-vessel and green-waste composting facilities, a residual waste Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) facility and waste wood processing and storage facilities.

  • Project Beacon – Advanced Plastics Recycling Facility (A-PRF)

Planning consent has recently been secured for an Advanced Plastics Recycling Facility (A-PRF) combining mechanical and chemical plastics recycling systems, an energy from waste plant and a four turbine windfarm.

This has culminated in Binn Ecopark being one of the most fully integrated resource recovery complexes in the UK, employing over 160 people and providing significant economic benefits and added value to the local economy.

02 - Wood Recycling Operation

SUEZ operate this facility to recover waste wood for use as a fuel in the RWE Biomass Energy facility at Markinch, Glenrothes. Waste wood is delivered to the site where it is screened for contaminants, shredded and any metals removed. 

03 - Food Waste Recycling

The anaerobic digestion (AD) facility operated by Earnside Energy Ltd processes about 30,000 tonnes of food waste each year from households and businesses across Tayside and Fife, producing nutrient rich digestate, compost and power.

An essential part of the composting process, Binn Ecopark has capacity for significant volumes of windrow composting. 

05 - Soils and Aggregate Recycling

Binn Group collects waste materials across a wide geographic area. Materials are also delivered to the site for treatment from companies as widespread as Aberdeen, Inverness, Edinburgh and Glasgow, as well as throughout the Central Belt. 

06 - Advanced Plastic Recycling Facility

Site for Advanced Plastics Recycling Facility for Pi Polymers Ltd. This facility will mechanically sort and chemically recycle large dense rigid plastics, processing up to 10,000 tonnes of material per annum. 

07 - Trade Waste Reception

Trade waste from shops, hotels, schools, colleges, sporting facilities and public events. Different to industrial materials, it is processed separately to recover plastic, metals and cardboard with the residual material used to produce SRF.
