Isle of Man Incinerator
Energy from Waste Plant
This controversial government owned facility is on Richmond Hill, Douglas
and became fully operational in 2004 with the first delivery of waste
being made on 9th March. The building was designed to be a landmark
with a heritage feel. The curves represent the rolling hills of the Island
and the stack a viking style sail.
Also known as the 'Energy-from-Waste Plant' the incinerator aims to reduce
the amount of waste burried at landfills at Point of Ayre and Archallagan
whilst producing electricity for the island. Currently
the plant is able to deal with all the burnable waste produced by the island
on a day to day basis.
