The French multinational, Lafarge, paper mills and landfill sites are also amongst those outed by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) for belching the most global warming gases into the atmosphere in 2008.
In a long list of nearly 100 polluters, there are also famous distilleries, food companies, chemical plants, sewage works, glass manufacturers, the Michelin Tyre company and the nuclear submarine bases on the Clyde.
Pollution from some of the major plants has gone up, as at ScottishPower’s Cockenzie coal-fired power station in East Lothian. Its emissions have leapt nearly 60% from 2.8 million tonnes in 2005 to 4.45 million tonnes last year.
But it is still second in the pollution league to ScottishPower’s other coal plant at Longannet in Fife. Emissions from Longannet were nearly 6 million tonnes, a 30% drop compared to 2005.
