Geminor and RiverRidge partner to export engineered waste fuels across Europe
Geminor is working in partnership with RiverRidge to export 60,000 tonnes of engineered fuels across the continent. The agreement, which commenced in September, will see Geminor manage the full export supply chain, including port-to-port shipment, storage and recovery.
From RiverRidge’s flagship fuel engineering facility in Coleraine, Geminor will collect a range of highly processed waste fuel. The fuel grades are 30mm SRF, 100mm SRF and 300mm Refined RDF, each destined for specialist recovery facilities.
Each grade of fuel will be either transhipped to Geminor’s multimodal logistics terminal in Sweden (for onward delivery to advanced recovery technology partners Landskrona Energi) directly to the Aalborg Portland Cement production facility in Denmark or to the REFA recovery facility in Denmark. The capability to provide recovery services for a range of engineered fuels allows Geminor to be an important partner to advanced waste processors.
Commenting on the partnership, Oliver Caunce, Senior Account and Business Development Manager at Geminor UK, said: “As the latest in a long line of UK supply successes for Geminor, agreeing an export contract with visionary waste management company RiverRidge is exciting news.
“This is an important step for Geminor in growing its service provision to multi-fuel waste management companies and will play a vital role in our ongoing expansion into advanced waste fuels market, while supporting EfW facilities with distinct fuel requirements.”
Gavin Doherty, Fuels Manager at RiverRidge added: “Engineering fuels to an exact specification is where RiverRidge has established itself as a clear leader across the UK and Ireland. With unique infrastructure and technology, we are able to manufacture fuels to specific parameters and characteristics which can be customer specific. We are excited at the partnership with Geminor, secondary fuel specialists, which will ensure timely delivery of our various specifications of fuel to many recovery facilities across Europe.”
