An interesting tour around Shanks’ Anaerobic Digestion plant in Cumbernauld and its state-of-the-art recycling facility in Blochairn today, accompanied by CeeD members. The AD plant processes food waste to produce renewable energy.
We were informed about the drivers of change in waste policy by Zero Waste Scotland’s Simon Morris, who emphasised 2025 targets of a minimum of 70% of waste to be recycled. We heard that businesses must really improve their segregation of materials to help us reach these targets.
Scotlands’ councils and companies are already working with GCU’s School of the Built and Natural Environment to try to improve their environmental activities.
