Leading European energy recovery specialist, Geminor, has signed a 25-year contract with waste and environmental services provider, Amey. The agreement will see Geminor supply a maximum of 50,000 tonnes of waste per annum to the company’s Allerton Waste Recovery Park in North Yorkshire.

The state-of-the-art facility, which opened earlier this year, is capable of turning 320,000 tonnes of ‘black sack’ rubbish into 28MwH of renewable electricity every year, with Geminor providing more than 20% of feedstock.

Working in partnership with North Yorkshire County Council and the City of York Council, Allerton Waste Recovery Park aims to reduce household waste sent to landfill by 90%. Amey will operate the facility of behalf of both councils for the next 25 years.

Jon Callaghan, Business Director at Amey, commented: “With the help of Geminor, we are diverting waste away from landfill and, instead of it being exported, it is now being treated to produce sustainable energy in the UK.

“Geminor was chosen as our new supplier due to the company’s extensive supply network and logistics provision.

“Council targets mean that we must divert biodegradable waste from landfill, which makes this new facility an instrumental part of waste management infrastructure.”

Simon Lowe, Senior Project Manager for Geminor, added: “It will be a pleasure to work with Amey, given its reputation and expertise. We distribute RDF to a large number of facilities across Europe but, as a UK company, we take great pleasure in providing fuel for local offtakers as well.”

Geminor holds supply contracts with more than 70 waste-to-energy facilities across Europe and is budgeting to manage 1.4 million tonnes of waste material for 2018.
