Four firms shortlisted to develop a municipal organic waste project for Cardiff have been named.
Cardiff Council said Agrivert, GENeco, Kelda Biogen Renewables Cymru and Shanks had been selected to develop proposals for the most sustainable and value for money treatment project.
Cabinet member for environment, Cllr Ashley Govier said: “The development of the organic waste treatment facilities will ensure we continue to develop solutions that make best use of the waste we all produce whilst securing a financial benefit for the residents of Cardiff.”
The council said it would work with the neighbouring Vale of Glamorgan Council to provide joint source-separated food and green waste collections.
Councillor Rob Curtis, cabinet member for environment said: “This procurement will allow us to treat our organic waste in accordance with our governments’ preferred technology, by using the most sustainable, cost-efficient and environmentally friendly way to treat all our food waste.”
