Ellgia are delighted to announce the signing of an extended agreement for the supply of Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) to the two Energy from Waste facilities at Ferrybridge which are owned and operated by Multifuel Energy Ltd, a 50/50 joint venture between SSE & Wheelabrator Technologies Inc. The new agreement based on a 7 year term, comes into effect on 1st January 2021 and provides future assurance for Ellgia’s customers of a UK based “zero to landfill” offtake partnership delivering the highest levels of operational and environmental performance.
Jack Lavington, Operations Director for Ellgia stated “We are delighted and the new supply agreement marks a significant milestone for our partnership with Multifuel Energy Ltd. We have worked over a number of years with MEL to ensure we can consistently deliver a high quality specification fuel to their class leading facilities and we are delighted to be able to further solidify that relationship on a longer term basis. Our customers can take comfort in the fact that we are able to offer a continued and sustainable UK based “zero to landfill” solution. I would like to offer my thanks to all those involved within both organisations who have worked tirelessly over the past 4 years in developing this real partnership approach.”
Colin Drew, Plant Manager at Ferrybridge 1 and 2, said: “We started to receive waste from Ellgia in March 2016 and since that time the relationship has worked well for both of us, and aligns with our vision to generate energy from waste in an efficient and sustainable way, achieving the highest recovery rates.”
