Hertfordshire, UK based waste derived fuels supplier and exporter, Andusia, has partnered with a new Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) supplier, Mid UK Recycling, which is part of the Dublin headquartered Beauparc Group.
The Beauparc Group incorporates Panda and Greenstar in Ireland and in the UK Mid-UK Recycling, WSR, Scotwaste and AWM in the Yorkshire area. The group produces over 500,000 tonnes of SRF per annum.
Andusia and Mid UK Recycling have formed a partnership in order to export in excess of 20,000 tonnes a year of SRF to be recovered at two cement plants in the Mediterranean. SRF is composed of residual, non-recyclable waste materials from household recycling waste and general industrial and commercial waste.
Due to additional processing, the fuel consists of smaller fractions with a higher energy content. The higher calorific value means it is suitable for use in cement kiln facilities, replacing fossil fuels such as Petcoke and coal. Largely used to power kilns across Europe, SRF offers a sustainable and cost effective solution to the production of cement.
“Significant investment in multiple SRF production lines has allowed the company (Mid UK) to produce bespoke alternative fuels that can be tailored to a customer’s exacting requirements,” explained Eamonn Hanley, Group Operations Director at Mid UK Recycling.
Stewart Brackenbury, Director and founder of Andusia added: “We have been assisting Mid UK Recycling with their RDF offtake in recent years and are delighted to now be able to take their SRF as an alternative fuel.”
