Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) exporter Waste 2 Resource has signed a new 10 year agreement with MHKW Rothensee to export waste to the company’s plant, located in Magdeburg, Germany.
The plant has been in operation since 2005 and processes on average 650,000 tonnes of waste a year, generating 370,000 MWh of power and 350,000 MWh of district heating, supplying local households and businesses. This will save fossil fuels by using waste in the long term and prevent emissions, harmful to the environment which occurs by depositing the waste on landfill sites in the UK.
Rolf Oesterhoff, commercial managing director at MHKW said: “We have been working with Waste 2 Resource since 2014 and are proud to re-affirm our business relationship by signing a 10 year contract. The contract signing was also unique in our experience as we signed this at the recent Champions League match at Anfield, where we were joined by Liverpool legend Phil Neal.”
Chris Farmer, Director at Waste 2 Resource said: “This contract cements the existing relationship we enjoy with MHKW and further develops our position in the RDF export market with a well-respected European partner.”
