The three-year contract will begin next month

Geminor has signed an agreement with the government of Guernsey to manage the export and recovery of 20,000 tonnes of RDF to Scandinavia.

The three-year contract, which begins in October, will see RDF shipped from Guernsey’s waste transfer station to the Jönköping Energi cogeneration facility in Torsvik, Sweden.

This will provide energy for thousands of homes and businesses across the country.

James Maiden, UK country manager at Geminor, said: “We are looking forward to working in close partnership with the State’s government to implement a new, sustainable approach to waste management.

“Rather than relying on landfill, Guernsey’s waste will become a highly beneficial source of green energy. What’s more, through the use of empty load logistics, the entire project will result in minimal CO2 emissions – a highly sustainable and economical solution.”

The agreement has the option of a two-year extension.
