Rubbish energy proposal wins planning
December 13 2012
The Clyde Energy Centre will be situated on the King George V dock in Cardonald, adjacent to the M8, and will handle around 250k tonnes of waste each year.
Backed by Peel Environmental the plans have been drawn up by architects Fletcher Rae, who have sought to imbue a degree of architectural flair to the 49m tall structure.
Jane Gaston, development manager for Peel Environmental, said: “We have developed an iconic design which reflects its position at the gateway to the city.
"We are pleased councillors have recognised such a design could help Glasgow to emulate the success of other similar, city-based facilities in Europe. These are viewed on the merit of their design as much as they are on their contribution to landfill diversion."
