Scotland’s largest biomass plant ready for opening ceremony

Costing £7.5 million (€8.85 million) to construct, Scotland’s largest organic waste recycling plant is being officially opened.

Located in Cumbernaud and owned by Scottish Water, Deerdykes has the capacity to generate electricity from 30,000 tonnes of food waste, benefitting 2,000 households a year.

Chris Banks, Scottish Water’s commercial director, said: ‘This new plant shows we’re leading the way, not just on renewable energy but in helping Scotland towards its ambition of zero waste. The facility has also created employment in the local area.’
