Powerday SRF powers cement plant in the Med
Powerday has signed a contract with recovered fuel exporter Andusia to supply Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) to a cement plant in the Mediterranean.
The contract for 10,000 tonnes of SRF will see this high-quality and highly calorific recovered fuel used to power the cement plant’s kilns. According to ENDS Report , the UK has seen over a 350% increase in SRF exports in recent times as Europe’s cement plants look to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and lessen their energy costs.
Powerday began the production of SRF last year, following the completion of the £2m upgrade to the second Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) at Old Oak Sidings in West London. Since this time, the company has attracted considerable interest from this emerging market around the world for this renewable fuel.
Jim Craig, Managing Director at Powerday commented: “At Powerday, we are committed to recycling and recovering the highest quality materials and securing the best environmental outcome for these products. We are very pleased to partner with Andusia to provide this processed material to this cement plant as a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels.”
Stewart Brackenbury, Director and founder of Andusia said: “We are very excited to be joining forces with Powerday. We are always looking for like-minded companies with a passion for waste recovery – and that is exactly what we have found!”
Powerday produces renewable fuels from residual waste at its Old Oak Sidings and Enfield MRFs. This ensures that the company can provide clients with environmentally responsible solutions for their non-recyclable waste and that this valuable material is not lost to landfill.
