Shore Energy's waste-to-energy plant in Scotland gets judicial nod
Sep 19, 2012 - A waste-to-energy plant in Lanarkshire worth GBP-50-million (USD 81m/EUR 62m) and proposed by British firm Shore Energy has been given the green light following a judicial review, the developer said.
The Court of Session rejected a legal challenge by North Lanarkshire Council against the decision of the Scottish government to grant planning permission to the project.
The plant in Coatbridge near Glasgow is planned to process 160,000 tonnes of waste per year. It will recover usable energy and extract recyclable materials such as ferrous and non-ferrous metals, plastics, etc.
