  • Another year of Zero waste to landfill

    In this post last year, we shared our Environmental report for the previous 12 months, for the waste we generated at our Bromborough Head office. You can read that here. In 2019, we produced 6.29 tonnes of mixed waste. Of this, 1.88 tonnes was immediately recycled and 4.41 tonnes converted to RDF.

    As you’d expect, the last 12 months have seen quite different results with the offices being closed due to COVID restrictions for short periods.

    So, in 2020, we generated 5,626.50kg of waste from our Bromborough Offices of which 0% went to landfill. This is a 10.66% reduction over the previous year.

    Of the waste we produced, 1.687kg, or 30% was re-cycled and 3,939kg, or 70% was used as Refuse Derived Fuel(RDF).

    Zero waste to landfill by Kimpton Energy Solutions for 2020 1200

    When we wrote the article last year, there was very little progress of RDF plants being installed in the UK and much of the waste was exported to Europe to incinerate for power generation, but it appears that progress is being made and according to Biffa in their post here, they now deliver 1,000 tonnes of RDF daily to the recently opened Ferrybridge Energy Recovery Facility, which enables regions from the North East and North West to be powered by their own waste.

    Biffa are also looking to develop UK energy recovery facilities, and have a fully consented 350Ktpa project at Newhurst Quarry near Shepshed, Leicestershire.
