Development of Viridor’s 34 MW Waste to Energy Facility Worth £5.3m to Local Firms in Avonmouth

Taunton-based recycling and waste to energycompany, Viridor, has spent £5.3 million so far with local businesses within 30 miles of the £252 million Resource Recovery Centre in Avonmouth.

The company, a part of the Pennon Group (LSE: PNN) has been working with local contractors including PMS, GAP Hire Solutions, Hanson and B&A on the construction of the Avonmouth energy from waste plant, which will divert 320,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste away from landfill.

“As part of Viridor’s Resource Recovery Centre construction we have been clear that working with local businesses is at the heart of establishing ourselves as a responsible neighbour,” commented Viridor Managing Director Phil Piddington. “It is not just during the construction phase of these projects that local suppliers can benefit, we will require support throughout the life of the facility.”

According to the company, in line with it and its construction partners commitment to support the local economy, some of the suppliers were sourced directly from Viridor’s ‘Meet the Buyer’ event in Bristol last July, attended by more than 30 companies interested in being involved.

Construction on site started in summer 2017 and, when operational, the facility will generate around 34MW, enough electrical power to supply 44,000 homes, the equivalent of a population larger than the city of Bath.

June 27, 2018
Expands waste processing and environmental services capabilities to better serve customers

INDIANAPOLIS, June 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Covanta Environmental Solutions, a leading provider of environmental services across a wide range of industries, has opened a new materials processing facility in Indianapolis to better serve customers with the latest in sustainable materials management and environmental services.

After more than 30 years successfully managing the City of Indianapolis’ waste at its Indianapolis Energy-from-Waste (EfW) facility, Covanta seized the opportunity to acquire and develop a vacant industrial property located in close proximity to the EfW plant. The new material processing facility will enable Covanta to expand the service offerings of its wholly-owned subsidiary, Covanta Environmental Solutions, to meet the growing needs of commercial and industrial businesses in Central Indiana.

Covanta Indianapolis has enabled many major local automotive, pharmaceutical, and chemical manufacturers to achieve zero-waste-to-landfill status in recent years, however the demand for these services began to outpace the EfW facility’s handling and processing capacity. The new materials processing facility – less than three miles away from the EfW facility – provides new processing and pre-sorting capabilities which will significantly improve efficiency and better serve new and existing customers.

“The demand for our sustainable material management services from leading manufacturers in the area has experienced strong and steady growth,” said Paul Stauder, president of Covanta Environmental Solutions. “Our investment in this new facility demonstrates our commitment to providing industry-leading solutions for a variety of waste streams while enabling our customers to reach their sustainability goals. After operating in Indianapolis for three decades, we are proud to be expanding, bringing new jobs and an important economic boost to the city.”


In addition to helping customers reduce waste sent to landfills, the newest Covanta Environmental Solutions facility will provide liquid and solid waste recycling and treatment, product destruction and de-packaging, railcar and tote cleaning and transportation and logistics support for companies with industrial waste disposal needs.

Covanta Environmental Solutions works with industries including pharmaceuticals, consumer products, health and beauty, food, automotive, chemicals and other manufacturers. The company’s services help solve some of the toughest environmental challenges faced by these industries and minimize risk. Some longtime customers in Central Indiana include Subaru of Indiana Automotive, The Hill and Griffith Company and Haynes International.

Oman: Sur Desalination Plant increases its drinking water production capacity by 51,000 cubic metres per day.

Veolia in partnership with the national Oman Power and Water Procurement Company (OPWP) has celebrated the extension of the contract covering the Sur Desalination Plant.

An additional 51,000 cubic metres will be added to the existing 80,000 cubic metres produced daily by the Sur facility, the first independent desalination project in Oman. On this occasion, the two partners celebrated the 100 millionth cubic meter of drinking water produced by the plant.

“We are delighted to work on the expansion of the plant. The opportunity allows Veolia to demonstrate once again our strong commitment to Resourcing the World,” commented Xavier Joseph, CEO of Veolia Gulf Countries.

160km south-west of Muscat, Veolia is working to combat water resource depletion by treating over 200,000 cubic metres of seawater every day. 350,000 residents of the Sharqiyah region are supplied by the Sur facility which uses reverse osmosis to produce 80,000 cubic metres of drinking water every day.

The plant recycles over 97% of the energy used for the treatment, saving 40% more energy than a conventional facility. Seawater is channelled from 28 beach wells and extracted from a depth of up to 80m. With high pressure (60 bars), the plant also eliminates chemical pre-treatment and has a minimal impact on marine and coastal ecology.
