For more than 40 years, our waste management team of planners, engineers and environmental scientists has helped customers develop the business opportunities in the waste sector while protecting communities and the natural environment.
Our involvement in waste management began in the 1960’s when we helped the Greater London Council develop its waste management programme. On these successful foundations, we built a multidisciplinary team of experts to bring a holistic approach to waste management solutions.
Our range of expertise covers the whole waste collection and disposal cycle, and all types of waste, including domestic, municipal, commercial, clinical, industrial, electrical, and hazardous waste.
We’ve developed waste master plans and strategies for countries as diverse as Dubai and Hong Kong, and have been involved in preparation of regional waste management strategies in the UK, the Czech Republic and Poland. Our roles have included technical advice, procurement, environmental permitting, management and business planning.
We offer a broad range of waste management planning services. With a full suite of analytical tools – financial, risk, waste flow, GIS and process simulation – our waste management specialists give clients practical business and operational solutions. Through our policy work with government and strategy work for the private sector, we create solutions that reflect the reality of the UK and international regulatory and business environment – for now and and for the future.
We are familiar with the technical processes involved in waste collection and disposal, including incineration, composting, landfill and energy from waste. Our technical experts can advise you on the disposal method that best suits your business and environment and help you implement this.
Our incineration expertise includes municipal and sewage sludge incineration in the UK, Russia and Hong Kong, where we have been involved in some of the world’s largest plants, with capacities up to 2000t/day.
We have sound technical experience of landfill engineering, design, monitoring and remediation, including projects in Hong Kong, UK, Macedonia and Uganda. In the UK, our experts have helped train staff from the Environment Agency and local government in the UK on landfill groundwater and leachate monitoring best practice.
Energy from waste
Our skills and experience in both the waste and energy sectors mean we're fully equipped to help clients deliver energy-from-waste developments. We have undertaken technical advisor roles for local authorities on projects involving energy from waste technology. Working closely with the Group’s team of power specialists, we undertake waste procurement, technical due diligence and independent certifier services.
