Borders College unveils new green strategy. A Scottish college where students are kept warm by a pioneering system using heat from local sewers has laid out new green plans to help protect the planet. The establishment has won prizes for its innovative SHARC Energy Systems revolutionary heat-recovery system, which extracts the natural warmth contained in waste water from the local sewage network and uses it to heat buildings. The system now provides around 95 per cent of the heat needed by the Galashiels campus and does not impact on the normal operation of the local waste water network.
