Levenseat Renewable Energy Limited is a 12.3 MWe energy from waste (EfW) plant and adjacent Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) at Forth by Lanark, Scotland. The £111m project will be the first time a UK plant has combined fluidised bed gasification technology with Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF), processed by the MRF. The MRF will recover plastics, metals, paper and card for recycling. The project is forecast to recycle over a million tonnes of materials over its lifetime and will generate the heat required by the MRF.

The project will recycle over a million tonnes of materials including plastics, metals, paper and aggregates over its lifetime and will generate the heat required by the MRF. The project is also expected to save around 1.3 million tonnes of CO2 emissions, divert over 1.4 million tonnes of waste from landfill and produce enough electricity to supply the equivalent of almost 18,000 homes over its lifetime.
