Tidy Planet, a Macclesfield based waste management technology specialist, has been chosen to supply a new multi-million pound waste management facility in Indonesia.
Working in partnership with UNTHA UK, the Macclesfield firm will supply technology for a plant processing a mix of plastic, metal, wood and food waste, generated at a liquid gas plant.
Tidy Planet will supply the plant with a dewatering system and composters to process five tonnes of food waste generated daily.
Commenting on the announcement, Tidy Planet’s sales manager Huw Crampton (pictured) said:
This is a great project win for British business. As part of the tender, we specified for as much equipment as possible to be supplied by the UK – including conveyors from Bristol and biofilters from Somerset, to heavy-vessel fabrication in West Yorkshire.
“And for us at Tidy Planet, it equates to further investment in the company and team growth – including the appointment of a new project manager to oversee the venture.”
UNTHA UK’s sales director, Gary Moore added:
The addition of the two UNTHA shredders at the IWMF are the perfect complement to Tidy Planet’s composting solution. We evaluated the material requirements and throughputs and the LR1000 and RS30 machines were the obvious choices.
“The IWMF will be providing the shredded wood needed for the composting process and as it results from a mix of hardwood logs, building timbers and broken pallets, we needed a versatile piece of equipment.
“With both the shredding and composting technologies in operation, this will help the oil firm fulfil its objective of achieving complete, closed-loop resource recovery at its Indonesia site – offering greater bottom-line benefit and autonomy over its waste management.”
