Thermal Energy Plant SLG

Thermal Energy Plant

In 2009 Scottish Leather Group designed and built a self-funded £6 million Thermal Energy Plant (TEP) which converts process waste from the production processes into valuable energy.

The waste input is mainly derived from the onsite effluent treatment works, the process of treating the factory liquors yields sludge materials and these are recycled through the thermal process.

In the TEP, the sludge is initially dried before being burned in a gasifier. The resultant gas is subsequently burned to generate heat which is used to make steam. Finally, the steam is routed back to the factories to be used in the manufacture of leather.

Prior to the construction of the TEP, the sludge material would have been transported to landfill.
