Suez secures £60m worth contract for waste management in UK

CTBR Staff Writer Published 19 January 2018

Water and waste management utility Suez has won a waste management contract for Devon County in the UK.

The waste treatment contract is worth £60m and is for duration of 10 years. It will come into force from January and may be extended for five more years.

From next February, residual waste will be routed from the new transfer station in Brynsworhty to Suez energy recovery centre in Severnside near Bristol.

Suez says that the new contract complements the services that are already being offered by the company which includes the operations of 18 household waste recycling centres and two transfer stations.

Suez’s teams are expected to work additionally with the county of Devon on its circular economy undertaking.

Devon County Councillor and Infrastructure Development & Waste Cabinet Member Andrea Davis said: “We are pleased to be working with SUEZ to deliver a new waste transfer station in the North Devon and Torridge area. Residual waste that cannot be reused, recycled or composted has been landfilled up until now. Starting in February 2019, it will be recovered and treated to generate energy.”

Recently, Suez NWS partnered with SE Environment to provide sludge treatment and recovery services in the city of Shenzhen in China.

The two companies formed a joint venture SE SUEZ Environmental Technology, which will be in charge of managing the project for a period of 30 years.

This is considered to be the largest sludge recovery and treatment center in the city of Shenzhen and it has a capacity of 800 tons of sludge per day.

The plant will optimise the treatment of sludge from more than 10 municipal wastewater treatment plants in the Longgang district and the downtown of Shenzhen, and will thus contribute to the protection of the city's environment.
