About this event

The Daldowie Fuel Plant, operated by ScottishPower subsidiary SMW Ltd, is one of the largest sludge drying centres in Europe. It converts sewage sludge into dry, low-odour fuel pellets. At present, the fuel is  co-fired with coal to produce electricity at Longannet Power Station in Fife.  

A new biomass power station is planned within the Longannet boundary which would have the capacity to burn the fuel granules, along with waste wood, to generate 20-25 MW. Our low-odour pellets represent an ideal fuel for the combustion sector and, as such, new markets are emerging that could provide further potential outlets for the fuel.
