Information on the Proposed Amendments to the Consented Binn Farm EfW Facility at Binn Farm, Glenfarg, Perth
Scotland’s Zero Waste Strategy and the associated legislative drivers are committed to the delivery of a sustainable resource management system to support the transition to a more circular and low carbon economy. The zero-waste plan supports all aspects of the waste hierarchy including waste prevention, preparing for re-use, recycling, recovery of other value (i.e. energy) and, as the last resort and where permitted, disposal.
In light of these legislative drivers including the forthcoming landfill ban and the extensive application of kerbside recycling for both household and commercial recyclates, and food waste, the most sustainable option for the remaining residual waste is to send this to Energy from Waste (EfW) facilities within Scotland.
The Binn Group have submitted amendments to their currently consented Energy from Waste (EfW) Facility at Binn Farm, Glenfarg, Perth. The proposed amendments are to modify the design of the EfW facility and to increase the waste tonnage from 60,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) to 84,900 tpa.
This facility will not only provide a solution for the non-recyclable residual waste generated on site, but will also be available as a residual waste management option for the neighbouring local authority and private waste contractors, as well as contributing to the capacity Scotland needs to take full responsibility for the treatment of its own residual waste.
