When a UK island aims for a zero-waste society

The Isle of Man, an autonomous realm of the United Kingdom, has set the bar high in environmental protection. This is why the Richmond Hill waste to energy plant is not only responsible for handling 100% of the waste produced on the Isle and generating 10% of its electricity, it must also seamlessly integrate into an extraordinary natural landscape. A success for SUEZ, who used the services of a reputed architect to design the plant
