European secondary fuels specialist, Geminor, took home gold as ‘Energy-from-Waste (EfW) Champion’ at this year’s Recycling & Waste Management Innovation Awards. New for 2018, the ceremony recognised industry-leading sustainability excellence and took place as part of the RWM Exhibition (12-13 September) at Birmingham’s NEC.
The judges were impressed with Geminor’s first-of-its-kind approach to refuse-derived fuel (RDF) export, continued international growth and commitment to the development of UK EfW capacity. Managing the logistics and recovery of more than 1.3 million tonnes of secondary fuel every year, Geminor adopts backhaul transport to minimise carbon emissions.
Simon Lowe, Senior Project Manager at Geminor UK, commented: “Being named EFW Champion for 2018 is testament to the whole team’s hard work, experience and commitment to embracing green energy innovation. Being recognised by such a prestigious judging panel for this success is a real honour.”
Taking home an RWM Innovation Award is the latest in a long line of successes for Geminor. Alongside further expanding its energy recovery operations, the company has reported record RDF export volumes* and recently opened its all-new logistics hub in Borg Havn, Norway.
Simon adds: “Thanks to a tight-knit recovery network, comprising 70 EfW facilities across Europe, Geminor plays a leading role in the European secondary fuel market. Alongside diverting waste away from landfill, recovering RDF provides sustainable heat and power for homes and businesses across the continent.”
