TJ Waste has signed a contract with Andusia, creating a new partnership that will see them exporting up to 10,000 tonnes of Refuse-Derived Fuel (RDF) in 2024 on TJ’s behalf. 

Directing waste down the RDF route aligns with TJ’s dedication to diverting waste from landfill, as it enables waste that cannot be disposed of in any other way to be put to good use as an energy source.

The RDF will be collected loose in trucks from TJ’s Materials Recovery Facility in Southampton and exported to Germany where the waste will be recovered and used to provide electricity and heating to local communities and businesses.

Entering into this 12-month contract with Andusia gives us a confirmed route for waste that cannot be reused or recycled, which in turn, enables us to provide stable pricing for our customers disposing of this type of waste with us.

Andusia Recovered Fuels Limited was established in 2012 when the RDF export market was in its infancy. Since then, they’ve become the UK’s largest independent exporter, offering a full and flexible supply chain solution for collecting and delivering RDF from UK producers (independent management-owned waste businesses) to the energy from waste plants in Europe. Energy and heat generation by Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plants is highly efficient and brings UK waste disposal higher up the waste hierarchy.

TJ Waste’s General Manager, Luke Haskell said: “Partnering with Andusia was the natural choice for us. We were looking for a cost-effective diversion solution, but were faced with a lack of locally available waste treatment infrastructure. We can now be confident that Andusia will handle our waste responsibly and look forward to embarking on this journey with them.”

Mark Terrell of Andusia said: “We are delighted to be working with TJ Group, who are a long established company running well maintained operations. This collaboration will also serve to strengthen our supply networks further in the south of the country to meet growing overseas demand for waste-derived fuels.”
