The States of Guernsey and the resource management and trading company Geminor have signed a new agreement for the handling and export of Refuse-derived fuel from the Channel Island.

This week, Geminor signed a contract with Guernsey authorities for an annual export of circa 11,500 tonnes of treated household and commercial waste (RDF). The contract, which runs from April 1st, spans five years with an option to extend for three additional years. This is the second contract Geminor has signed with The State of Guernsey.

Geminor has engaged the Channel Islands’ transport operator Profreight as a subcontractor for the export of the RDF, where the RDF will be baled and shipped to EfW plants in Sweden.

Oliver Caunce, Country Manager at Geminor UK, comments on the new agreement.

– We are delighted that the States of Guernsey has shown us renewed confidence by signing a five-year contract for the export of RDF. With a well-functioning 5-year partnership behind us, we now look forward to continuing this cooperation until 2029 and beyond, says Caunce.

– The Guernsey commercial and household waste will be used for energy recovery in some of the most modern and efficient EfW plants in Europe, and we look forward to exploring more efficiencies with the Authority over the lifetime of the contract, says Oliver Caunce at Geminor UK.
