Andusia and Grundon have formed a one-year partnership to supply up to 10,000 tonnes of refuse-derived fuel (RDF) from their Colnbrook site to an Energy from Waste (EfW) facility in Germany.
Historically, Andusia have delivered RDF in baled and wrapped form, however it will now be transported in loose on walking floors systems.
Grundon own and operate a wide range of treatment facilities, providing the capability to deal with multiple waste streams.
The EfW technology is significant, providing both an alternative to diminishing landfill void and as a sustainable option for energy recovery.
Alec Powell, General Manager of resource and recovery at Grundon, said, ‘As the UK’s EfW infrastructure develops it is vital that we have dependable cost-effective outlets for RDF. As we continue this transition, Andusia’s knowledge and expertise within this space made it an easy decision to partner with them’.
Chris May, Andusia’s operations director, said ‘Here at Andusia we always aim to offer both our waste producers and plants a bespoke service and this time I’m pleased to have found the perfect solution for Grundon. As the waste was to be supplied in loose form, we worked with walking floor haulier, Jantschitsch, to ensure that it was possible.’
