Our reliance on traditional forms of energy is not sustainable, and a recent report suggests that manufacturers will be facing considerable increases in fuel costs by 2020.
Other forms of energy generation such as anaerobic digestion, waste-to-energy and biomass systems are becoming more popular, as the operating costs and pay-back for the installation of these technologies become less.
We are currently actively engaged in the sourcing of good quality residual materials that cannot be recycled but would be suitable for use as alternatives to fossil fuels in power stations both in the UK and abroad, as well as the installation of biomass systems on site.
We are able to offer the following services to industry:
- Site surveys to identify potential waste streams using the waste hierarchy
- Development of fuel routes
- Routing of materials to minimise carbon footprint whilst maximising payloads
- Analysis of calorific constituents to determine suitability
- Full audit trails, and use of fully permitted facilities
- Supply of biomass systems for on-site treatment of waste materials
According to the UK’s Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP), moving towards a circular economy will:
- reduce waste
- drive greater resource productivity
- deliver a more competitive UK economy
- position the UK to better address emerging resource security/scarcity issues in the future.
- help reduce the environmental impacts of our production and consumption in both the UK and abroad.
