Building on the success of the Binn Group’s decades old waste management business, Binn Ecopark is an established and growing circular economy focused resource management centre, at the forefront of plastics recycling in the UK.
The site currently includes two Material Reclamation Facilities (MRF) treating commercial, industrial and municipal waste, an anaerobic digestion facility, in-vessel and green-waste composting facilities, a Residual Waste Solid Recovered Fuel Plant and a waste wood processing and storage facility.
The site processes over 300,000 tonnes of waste annually and planning consent has recently been secured for Project Beacon, an Advanced Plastics Recycling Facility (A-PRF), as all as a small energy-from-waste plant.
Utilising the significant natural resources of hydro, wind and solar that Perth has to offer, Binn Ecopark is the flagship initiative in the area’s circular economy and clean technology opportunities and benefits from a well-established and growing supply chain and support network.
A four-turbine 9 MW wind farm is under construction and will enable one of the UK’s first low carbon, low-cost private grid systems. With this stimulus, Binn Ecopark aims to expand as a site for new advanced resource management processes, to become one of the most integrated and low carbon resource management facilities in Europe.
Waste to Energy and solar power will complete the energy mix at the facility and support the transition to advanced food production and other clean technology developments.
