Isle of Man
Set in the heart of the Irish Sea, the Isle of Man is a picturesque and independent semirural community – home to 80,000 people.
In the year 2000, the Isle of Man Government's Waste Plan identified a hierarchy for dealing with the island's waste – to minimise, recycle, and recover energy through energy-from-waste, minimising the amount of waste being sent to landfill.
To help achieve this, a contract was awarded to SITA Isle of Man to design, build, and operate an energy-from-waste facility to divert waste from the island's landfill sites.
The facility was completed in 2004 and now processes all of the island’s 60,000 tonnes of domestic and commercial residual waste, producing 10 per cent of the island’s electricity.
Its state-of-the-art technology and onsite laboratory ensure the highest environmental and operational standards are maintained.
Each year, the SITA Isle of Man energy-from-waste facility welcomes around 1,000 visitors.
