The energy from the company’s commercial and domestic waste processing facility in Nottingham produces heat and steam to generate power without using fossil fuels. Since the facility opened 39 years ago, it has reduced the amount of Nottinghamshire’s waste going to landfill sites by 5 million tonnes.
I have known Atlas Copco for over 23 years and have always had a good quality service from them in all respects. The quality of their products definitely fits with what FFC requires in this facility.
When we sat down to discuss potential requirements, life cycle costs and energy efficiency was at the forefront of everyone’s mind. Our proposal was a solution that delivered the lowest life cycle cost to our customer and energy-efficient filtration was an integral and indispensable part of the installation.
FCC’s Eastcroft plant generates steam used by many public buildings in Nottingham such as the National Ice Centre. In addition, it keeps 5,000 families warm while keeping the climate a little cooler. Atlas Copco was seen to be on the same page in an endeavour to make sure that no energy is wasted. From Philip Eyre, FCC Environment’s Maintenance Manager’s perspective the whole system is a perfect fit with FCC’s ethos.
