Eunomia’s waste work in the UAE
Consultancy Eunomia will support a team helping to develop an integrated waste management system in four of the Emirates of the UAE (Ajman, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah and Umm Al Quwain).
Eunomia’s role includes reviewing a range of treatment technologies for residual waste, including all forms of energy-from-waste technology.
Mike Brown, who will be directing the study, said: “We are pleased to see that our reputation is growing in countries where we have not worked before. This is our first project in the area, although we have delivered seminars in the area in the past. We hope to build our relationship with our project partner, and to build the basis for a transformative project.”
Neales wins Blackpool Pleasure Beach contract
Neales Waste Management has won a three-year waste and recycling contract with the Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
Under the terms of the arrangement Neales will implement the amusement park’s first food waste collection service. Neales have worked with the site’s management and provided a solution that ensures all the food waste produced is bagged at source and then transported to an anaerobic digestion facility where it is used to create sustainable electricity and fertilizer.
The tourist attraction has 125 rides and attractions and was voted the UK’s Number One amusement park by social review website TripAdvisor.
Toyota steps up battery collections
Toyota Motor Europe (TME) is extending its collection of hybrid batteries to independent end-of-life vehicle treatment operators to collect 100% of used batteries.
Steve Hope, general manager TME environment affairs, says: “Today used hybrid batteries are still mainly destined for recycling. However, TME has started to research the different options for the remanufacturing of NiMh batteries.”
Solutions include giving those batteries a second life as vehicle-to-vehicle or vehicle-to-stationary energy sources.
