Ward partners with EfW specialist Andusia as part of plans for zero landfill

Midlands-based metal recycling and waste-management firm Ward has signed a new partnership deal with Energy from Waste (EfW) specialist Andusia, which will see residual materials being exported to Europe to be used to generate power.

Ward Andusia PartnershipThe move comes as part of a broader plan to eventually divert 100 per cent of Ward’s processed materials away from landfill, and will see over 25,000 tonnes of residual waste making its way to EfW plants in Germany every year.

Ward has already begun installing specialist baling and wrapping equipment at its forward site at Ilkeston to help facilitate the transport of these materials.

Ben Stubbs, Operations Manager at Ward, said: “Energy from Waste is becoming pivotal in achieving global Net Zero aims and something we’ve been increasingly focused on, so this partnership demonstrates an ongoing commitment for Ward.

“As a leading waste and recycling specialist, we consistently produce a high-quality product to a tight specification, which is vital for ensuring a reliable RDF supply. In addition, our continuous investment in improving and increasing our waste processing capacity makes us the perfect strategic partner for Andusia.”

Mark Terrell of Andusia, said: “We were impressed by Ward’s reputation as a leading waste and recycling specialist and their aim to achieve zero to landfill wherever possible.

“Our organisations are perfectly aligned and Andusia is proud to be supporting Ward’s mission by working together to ensure more waste is recovered and diverted away from landfill and back into the supply chain to create renewable energy.”
