B&M invests £1m in innovative waste facility

Categories: B&M News

Trafford park RDF launchWaste management specialist B&M Waste Services, has opened a £1million innovative Refuse Derived Fuel facility at its site in Trafford Park, Manchester.

The brand new facility will take residual commercial waste.  Materials such as cardboard, wood and metals will be recycled whilst all non-recyclable waste will be compacted into bales and wrapped and transported to a CHP (Combined Heat and Power) site in Germany. The thermal energy is then recovered to produce electricity and steam generated for a local district heating system.

Krystian Lipa from Vattenfall, B&M Waste Services CHP partner in Hamburg, Germany attended the opening together with Thomas Obermeier, President of the German Waste Association. Michael Hyman, Executive member for Economic Growth and Prosperity at Trafford Council was also in attendance.

Neil Curtis, Director of B&M Waste Services said: “B&M Waste Services is always exploring ways to improve our offering and find new ways of preserving the earth’s resources for future generations. We are absolutely delighted to be opening our new RDF plant today in Trafford Park. By harnessing the energy contained in the material, B&M is able to help our customers to preserve natural resources, whilst diverting waste from landfill, resulting in lower carbon emissions.”

B&M Waste Services provides total waste management solutions to businesses across the UK. B&M Waste employs more than 170 people across sites in Merseyside, Manchester and Norwich.  The new RDF site will create five new jobs.

Michael Hyman, Conservative Councillor for Bowdon Ward and Executive Member for Economic Growth and Prosperity at Trafford Council said: “Trafford has a deserved reputation for business development and innovation. B&M Waste Services’ brand new facility demonstrates its commitment to investing in highly innovative technology which will help drive economic growth in the region.  I feel sure that other businesses within Trafford Park, who wish to reduce their carbon footprint, will also invest in this prestigious service.”

The RDF production process is implemented through B&M’s ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. B&M has operated a Carbon Neutral business since 2010 when it achieved the Publicly Available Specification (PAS) 2060. B&M has already offset over five thousand tonnes of carbon dioxide, and over the last 3 years has given £43,000 in support to Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) certified clean energy projects.

Neil Curtis added: “We are extremely proud to welcome all of our guests – from the UK and Germany here today at B&M Trafford Park so they can be part of the next phase of our exciting journey. This is a substantial investment which further demonstrates our commitment to the environment.”
