Here you will be able to find out more on the facility, news on construction progress, updates for the community, supplier and job opportunities, and how to get involved.
The Oldhall ERF is set on the Oldhall Industrial Estate, Irvine, on a site allocated for business and industry. It will recover energy by processing around 186,500 tonnes per year of post-recycled residual commercial waste which would otherwise go to landfill or be exported to Europe for treatment. This waste will have been sorted to remove valuable recyclables, such as glass, metal, plastic, paper and card.
The facility will generate enough electricity for the equivalent of over 30,000 homes, more than all the residential properties in Irvine. It will have the facility to generate heat that could be used by nearby businesses. Oldhall ERF will provide approximately 200 of jobs at peak construction and 28 new full-time local jobs during operation.
