Greenstar partners up with Bedminster

Irish waste management company Greenstar plans to develop bio-waste infrastructure throughout Ireland through a strategic partnership with bio-technology treatment company Bedminster, it announced last week.

The deal involves an investment of around €40 million over three years, helping the company achieve its objective of maximising the diversion of biodegradable municipal waste from landfill.

Bedminster, controlled by Oyster Capital, uses a patented biological process to convert organic material into a clean bio-fuel which has the same energy value as peat. The mechanical biological treatment (MBT) system can convert municipal solid waste into bio-fuel or raw compost in less than three days.

Greenstar chief executive Steve Cowman said: “As the amount of waste we produce continues to soar, the only option is to invest significantly in infrastructure that will allow us to meet our legislative obligations in the short term and reduce costs and environmental impacts in the medium to long term.”

Bedminster do not currently have a facility in Ireland, but have 12 plants in North America, Australia and Japan.
