The 8,000 tonnes-per-year capacity clinical waste treatment plant in Malvern, Worcestershire, is to undergo commissioning following Covid-19-enforced construction delays.
Developed by Waste Energy Partners, the facility will be owned by Clinitek (Malvern) LLP.
Though commissioning was due to start last year, the plant is said to have experienced numerous issues throughout the pandemic. The small site made it difficult to enforce safe social distancing, while the project suffered several suspected Covid-19 cases amongst the site team and subcontractors, leading to the temporary suspension of works for self-isolation.
Waste to fuel specialist Andusia is to be the sole supplier to the Malvern plant, supplying 8,000 tonnes of hazardous and clinical waste per year (see letsrecycle.com story). Andusia Hazchem Treatment Ltd, the company’s hazardous waste treatment arm, will provide 40,000 tonnes of hazardous and clinical waste for the high temperature treatment facility over the course of its five-year deal.
