Totus Delivers Guernsey RDF

Totus Delivers Guernsey RDF

As part of a contract with Island Waste and AVR, Totus sustainably manages residual commercial waste from the island of Guernsey.

The multi-year tri-party deal will see Totus manage the Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) produced at Island Waste's materials recovery facility on the island and transport it to AVR's Energy from Waste Facility (EfW) in the Netherlands, where it will be used to produce electricity and heating.

With Guernsey's landfill now close to capacity, the deal will provide an environmentally and commercially sustainable solution for commercial waste produced on the island, once recyclable materials have been recovered and recycled. AVR's EfW facility in Rotterdam is the largest in Europe, producing enough energy to power over 200,000 homes and providing district heating to around 160,000 households in the region.

Commenting, Totus Environmental Managing Director, Andy Jones, said:

"We look forward to working with Island Waste and AVR's to provide a highly sustainable solution for the Island of Guernsey, enabling it to optimise the value of its residual commercial waste in the mid to long term."

Michael Grime, Managing Director of GRG, owner of Island Waste, also commented:

"Island Waste has invested heavily in its materials recovery facility on Guernsey to enable as much recycling from waste as possible, however ultimately there are materials that cannot be recycled any further. Landfill is nearing full capacity and the island's strategy is now fully focused on recycling and recovery so waste can be used as a resource where possible. This new solution enables us to help the island achieve its recycling targets and create a fuel from the remaining waste, providing heat and power to thousands of families."

Roger Kremers, Manager International Sales & Services at AVR:

"The pre-treated RDF is a suitable input for AVR's facility and we are happy to support the Ilse of Guernsey to improve their waste cycle by turning residual waste into energy"
