Lakeside and O.C.O Technology agree 10-year deal
Lakeside Energy from Waste and O.C.O Technology have signed a 10-year contract to recycle the air pollution control (APC) residues generated by the flue gas capture systems at Lakeside’s energy from waste (EfW) facility in Colnbrook, Slough.
O.C.O Technology’s accelerated carbonation technology (ACT) process uses waste carbon dioxide gas as a resource to transform APC residues into a carbon-negative aggregate, which can be used as a sustainable construction product.
The contract extends an existing relationship between the two companies.
O.C.O Technology began recycling Lakeside’s APC residues four years ago, helping Lakeside to become the UK’s first zero waste to landfill EfW facility in 2017.
The new agreement will help maintain the zero waste industry benchmark over the coming decade.
Danny Coulston, operations director at Lakeside, said: “This contract underlines our commitment to the sustainable generation of electricity from residual waste materials.
“In 2017, we led the way to zero waste to landfill for EfW facilities and are delighted that this long-term commitment is reflected in the new, 10-year contract with O.C.O Technology.”
