Edinburgh signs food waste deal

11 March 2013 The City of Edinburgh and Midlothian councils have signed a waste PPP deal with their preferred bidder.
Alauna Renewable Energy, a consortium comprised of Scottish Water Horizons and Kelda Group, has agreed the deal to design, finance, build and operate an anaerobic digestion facility near Millerhill in Midlothian for 20 years.

Construction is now due to begin next year, with an opening of the new plant scheduled for 2015.

“We are delighted to have been appointed to deliver such an innovative project that will make a significant contribution to the sustainability of the local communities and environment,” said Peter Sharpe, managing director of Alauna. “We’ve been working hard with the Councils to finalise the contract details and we are pleased that these are now all agreed and we can look forward to helping realise their aspirations."
