Viridor and Ansa Environmental Services have signed a new contract to divert 55,000 tonnes of Cheshire East's household residual waste.

The five-year contract, which started last month, will transform the waste into fuel for energy recovery at Viridor’s Runcorn Energy Recovery Facility (ERF).

Simon Wright, Viridor’s business development manager said: “The partnership demonstrates a commitment to generate low carbon energy from Cheshire East’s non-recyclable waste and makes the best use of resources locally in Cheshire, supporting jobs and the local economy.”

Runcorn ERF treats up to 850,000 tonnes of RDF each year and generates up to 70MW of electricity and up to 51 MW of heat for exclusive use by INOVYN.

Viridor sent enough energy to the national grid last year to power 380,000 homes - the equivalent of a city the size of Leeds.
