New plant in Scotland to generate heating from wastewater

Date: 24 September 2019

A new £6m energy hub, due to open this month, will provide heating generated from wastewater and is the first of its kind in the UK. The Stirling District Heat Network will deliver low-carbon heat to public buildings, including a leisure centre and football stadium.

Organisations such as Zero Waste Scotland and Volunteer Scotland will also benefit. Scottish Water estimates that the project will save 381 tonnes of carbon a year, equal to 1.5m miles driven in a petrol car.
