Implementing and commissioning

In 2018 our team was commissioned to perform a waste stream analysis of the Mall food court waste, this confirmed the suitability of the Advetec XO system achieving set objectives.

The XO6 system was implemented in the spring of 2019 and incorporated a conveyor load system to meet the handling needs at the Mall. Collection of the post process digestate is contained within a secure caged bin due to the open public nature of the Mall.

Results

In the first month of operation the number of waste hauls required on-site reduced by 66%, creating some very real immediate savings for the Mall. As a result of this initial implementation, Advetec are now working with the Group to develop a roll-out plan across the estate throughout the USA.

The integration with our existing waste management process worked perfectly. We quickly achieved our goals by reducing the volume of waste going to landfill as well as the cost - which enhances our commitment to the Mall policy on CSR and sustainability.
