The contract will see Geminor supply up to 50,000 tonnes of waste per year to the facility

European energy recovery company Geminor has signed a 25-year contract with Amey to supply secondary fuel to Allerton Waste Recovery Park in North Yorkshire.

The contract will see Geminor supply up to 50,000 tonnes of waste per year to the facility, which opened earlier this year.

Operated by Amey, the facility is capable of turning 320,000 tonnes of black sack rubbish into 28MwH of renewable electricity ever year, with Geminor providing more than 20% feedstock.

Jon Callaghan, Amey business director, said: “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.

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

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