Veolia Environmental Services has sealed a contract with Siemens to process a range of waste streams as the manufacturer looks to boost reuse at its 90 UK sites and offices.
Veolia says the three-year contract is worth nearly £6m and is designed to provide circular solutions for Siemens’ waste streams, split into four lots.
They include recycling and waste collections for wind power sites, predominantly in Scotland and the recycling of ‘exotic’ metals from manufacturing and maintenance plants that design, build and service industrial turbo machinery.
Estelle Brachlianoff, Veolia’s senior executive vice president, UK and Ireland, said her company and Siemens shared an approach to “environmental thought leadership, the circular economy and the future of urban sustainability”.
“This far-sighted contract utilises our fully integrated environmental services offering and will enable Siemens to take a holistic approach to its varied waste streams and treat them in a sustainable way, particularly by reusing more of the materials they produce,” she said.
