Renewi secures outlet for unique ICOPOWER® pellets

11 April 2019

Renewi Icopower

International waste-to-product company, Renewi plc (LSE: RWI) has recently extended its contract with Heidelberg Cement Miljö for the supply of Renewi’s unique ICOPOWER® pellets.

Renewi has been supplying Heidelberg with Icopower® pellets for several years. They are used to power cement kilns and to produce cement clinker. The ICOPOWER® pellets are created at Renewi’s Amsterdam facility and shipped from Renewi’s own quay to the Swedish island of Gotland.

Specifically collected commercial waste is used to create the ICOPOWER® pellets. This ensures the high calorific pellets have a consistent composition and meet strict production specifications. Renewi is one of only a few companies in the world to make this type of high-quality fuel product.

The contract will run for the next three years, with an extension possibility for a similar period. Renewi will supply Heidelberg with up to 54,000 tonnes of pellets a year.

Michael van Hulst, Regional Director of Renewi’s Commercial Netherlands Division said:

“We are very proud that the contract with Heidelberg has been extended. We have been working together for many years, proving that an innovative product made from waste can have a significant contribution to a more sustainable world using it as fuel in an industrial process with a large energy demand. It perfectly fits our ‘waste no more’ vision.”
